Hi, Julie! I just wanted to welcome you to the forum. I see you've already gotten a response, so that is good. We do have a few people here with AIH. We don't generally bother noting other diseases/disorders we are dealing with, except as they relate to liver disease. I get the feeling on other forums that it's a game of one-upmanship (I have more diseases/meds than you do.) This doesn't mean you don't have a lot to deal with...you certainly do...but it may be more helpful to just focus on your liver here and any other conditions that may affect it.
I can relate to Prednisone psychosis, though! I had 2 caps of Prednisone about 30 yrs. ago and had a psychotic episode (hallucinations, unable to sleep, felt like bugs under my skin biting me) for 3 days until I finally went to the ER. I was told to always say I am "allergic" to Pred. In the event that AIH is a definitive diagnosis for you, I hope you will check out Dany's suggestion and maybe others will also have some ideas for you.
Best of luck!
