What other meds are you own? Are you taking rectal meds? They make steroid rectal meds that have less systemic side effects and treat your effected area.
If you really hate being on Pred then ask about
going to a biological (if you’re not on one already). That could help you get off of Pred sooner.
Are you splitting up you Pred doses or taking them all at once?
