I was recently started on Entocort and had an allergic reaction - bad vision, tongue tingling, sweating. Now my GI wants me to go on prednisone for 8 weeks, starting at 40 mg a day and tapering off. I'm worried that I will have a reaction to this as well, plus I'm just real concerned about the length of time he wants me on it. I am traveling out of state during the week after being done with the series and don't want to end up with withdrawal while I'm gone. Does anyone have any words of wisdom about their mid-length use of prednisone or about withdrawal symptoms - what they were or how long they lasted?
