In brief: What can you do?

Prednisone is heaven sent, yet it causes so many issues as well.
There has to be a balance struck between the positive and the negative of prednisone. Your doctors are best judge in helping you determining that.

In brief: Discuss

This issue with your doctor. Steroids, like prednisone, have lots of potential side effects.
However in many cases, there are no other drugs to use.
