Hello, I'm on prednisone again (25mg daily) and I would like to take glutamine, but I know that it affects immune system somehow so I'm afraid if it can't make my condition worse or if prednisone works as it should with it. Thanks for aswers, I really hate the side effect of prednisone that causes loss of muscles.

L-glutamine shouldn't interfere or interact with prednisone and it has multiple benefits:

Glutamine is an amino acid that is frequently used as a sports and fitness supplement. It has been found to help modulate the immune system and protect the mucosal protective layer in the intestine. Studies have demonstrated that glutamine can help improve blood flow in inflamed segments of the colon in patients who have ulcerative colitis. Glutamine is also able to reduce leakiness of the intestine, which may help to reduce symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.

Start with a low dose and gradually ramp up... see how your body reacts. If you begin to get constipated, you've gone to too high a dose.
