My Support Groups:
Agree with NGNG, I get Diarrhea with flares. Within the first few days of taking steroids I get backed up a bit. It eventually eases up but sometimes you may need assistance via low-fiber diet or laxatives. If you continue to have issues with constipation you should consult your doctor about the best way to address the problem while taking prednisolone.

Best of luck to you!
