@npostusa, I can relate to what you are going through. My PMR is in remission but I also had frequent urination mostly due to an enlarged prostrate (I think). Prednisone can cause excessive or frequent urination according to what I've read. Mayo Clinic has some information you might find helpful:

— Overactive bladder:

You might want to discuss the symptoms with your doctor. I was put on tamsulosine which is a generic Flomax to help with my problem of frequent urination due to not being able to empty the bladder.

Thank you, this is helpful – I have noticed a decrease in my bathroom visits as I have been tapering off. Different than a prostate issue, I could not believe the amount of times I went and the amount of fluid that was eliminated. It was crazy to go that much in one hour so to speak.
