Can Prednisone make IBS worse??
Hi all. I have been on prednisone going on a month now with the dosage going up and down as needed for symptoms. One thing I have noticed is usually with my IBS I have issues with constipation...but this time around I have had issues in the opposite direction(bloating, cramping, looser stools, urgency,etc)and am just wondering if maybe the prednisone has any affects on this? Anyone else?
Also I seem to have issues with dreams that are associated with anxiety or stresses within my life...didn't know if that could simply be due to the stress in my life at present or the prednisone too?
