Welcome @mec1944 to connect. I am so sorry that you have had to be on high doses of prednisone. I hate prednisone but it's the best there is for inflammation out there. We are not doctors so I can't recommend another medication but I can suggest that you ask your doctor if there are any others with less harsh side effects. I become a different person, mean and intolerant. Only your doctor should decide when you are well enough. "Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) is an interstitial lung disease caused by repeated inhalation of certain fungal, bacterial, animal protein or reactive chemical particles, called antigens. … Hypersensitivity pneumonitis is subdivided into two forms: acute and chronic. Symptoms differ for each form." google. If this disease has caused a lot of scar tissue than taking prednisone can lower the inflammation. Do you know what antigen caused your disease? Are you breathing ok?
