I would definitly say prednisone can increase the urgency to urinate. I just got off it a week ago and during my tapper and usually when i first start a regimend i get up at night like every 2 hours or less. It was frustrating only at night for me because i hate waking up. Anyways i have been off prednisone for 10 days now and the frequent urinating has stopped. Also my acne has started to really clear up, and my appetite isnt so raging out of control. I am glade to be off the drug. The only bad thing is my joints are sore and stiff especially in the morning. I am hoping maybe its a fall season bug or something and goes away asap!
