yes you can find ADs help with pred depression. It was offered to me when I had a 2 year course of prednisone and got very depressed. I opted not to take ADs due to the reason that I thought it was pred induced. After I ceased taking pred I still had the depression and then started taking them. My GI was very much in favor of putting his mood altered pred patient on ADs.
