I hate prednisone!!! I become Sybil . The last time my GI gave it too me it was awful!!! Had never reacted like that before; my husband and son were afraid to even talk to me. It was then I realized I could not take it anymore and called my GI. They switched me to Entocort, It works like a steroid but isn't a steroid. Now, I will tell you that I was still a little moody but nothing like when I was on prednisone. Might be worth asking you GI about it. I know I will never take prednisone again!
