LDN and steroids

I have heard that ldn can be run alongside 10 mg prednisone when necessary. Does anyone know if you can do ldn with entocort or budesonide instead of pred? Specifically I have 9 mg uceris tabs.
Yes, I believe a few people have done it in conjunction with entocort and budesonide. We also did along side full dose of prednisone with no issues.
My son has always ldn and entocort together (though at different times of day). We really don't know how if the entocort decreases the ldn's effect.
I just had a medrol injection and followed wih a dose pack while on LDN. My BP spiked for two days, but I don't know if that was from the combo or just the steroids. That was the first time I ever had a steroid injected. Otherwise seemed fine. I may need to go back on a steroid for a month or two if this flare doesn't stay under control. Doctor didn't seem to think it would be a problem.
