I agree with Gail. Imodium normally helps calm things down for. I start with a half tablet to see how it goes and increase if needed. I know most of us don't like to start any sort of prednisone bursts, but you might try asking your doctor if they think it might help. I can definitely understand if you're wanting to avoid it though!
