I understand....I take prednisone also for Asthma. It makes me crazy....
I take Xanax four times a day while on prednisone and it works great. Keeps me calm. I take a sleeping pill to help me sleep while I take prednisone too.
I know I need the prednisone, but the side effects are awful. Good luck.
