Prednisone can cause emotional and psychiatric symptoms. It is not uncommon to have headaches especially when weaning or reducing the dose.

These symptoms usually go away completely after you stop taking the prednisone.

I suggest you call your doctor and tell them about your symptoms. Make sure they understand that they are really bad.

Ask if you can take Entocort instead. It is a different form of prednisone that should give you much fewer side effects and work as well.
