Ellen (2 years ago):

I have taken prednisone for 2weeks for a bad chest infection. My stomach feels really bloated and very uncomfortable. Really extended. Constipation too. Have drank water and ate veggies, but makes my stomach feel worse.

I am off them now, 2 days, and noticed constipation is going away, but still feel bloated and extended. Lots of gas too !!
