champagnekindofgal: They probably suggested it at the ER, but are you taking any sort of acid reducer? I always take Pepcid or something like it whenever I am on prednisone (just make sure you take the acid reducer at least an hour before ther prednisone).
huntersmom: Prednisone lowers your body's ability to fight infections, so the UTI is not surprising. You should also watch out for other infections while you're on it (like upper respiratory infections). I'm sorry I don't have anything to add about
your intestinal problems. Good luck and I hope you get to feeling better soon.
