How are the side effects with endocort vs prednisone orally? Do they seem lessened? I took oral prednisone and did very poorly with side effects and ended taking time off from work. Cannot afford to do that again. However, I am concerned since endocort is a form of prednisone that is suppose to release in the bowel.
I find the side effects of entocort to be much less than prednisone, but it's still a corticosteroid drug and is not entirely without side effects.
