Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Except of prednisone you should take an immunosuppressant agent, like Methotrexate, as subcutaneous prefilled syringe or intramuscular, or oral tablets to improve your symptoms and slow disease activity!

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr. Ilektra Xhafa(Kacareli)
