I agree with all of you mentioned PROBIOTICS. Helps me a lot.
The side effects I had while eating prednisone, which is a steroide:
increased activity - while higher doses too active. (started at 40 mg x 2 days, 20 mg x 4 days, then 10 mg x some weeks, then lower and out) While on 40 mg and 20 mg: HIGH activity, while on 10 mg: High, but acceptable...while on 5 mg....lazy as usual
I got no "moonface".....I had a slight trouble sleeping if I woke up in the middle of the night, this dissapeared when started on 10 mg.
I talked a LOT while on high doses. (My poor family)....
But remember: sideeffects occurs in different shapes
Effects: got pain free / other sympt dissapeared from day 3 - 4, pain / other symptoms returned when on lower dose. Entocort is nicer to the body. If your doctor say it's ok, why not try it instead?
