Minimizing negative effects of Prednisone, prescribed for focal segmental glomerulosclerosis

Dear all,

I have been put on Prednisone yesterday to treat a rather serious autoimmune kidney disease.

Preliminary plan is the following: 1. Methylprednisolone - 14 tabs / day (there is for 4mg in one tab which is an equivalent of 5mg of regular prednisolone) 2. Esomeprazole - 2 tabs / day - to protect gastrointestinal system 3. Sucralfate - 4 tabs / day - to protect gastrointestinal system

Doc also suggested adding calciu+D3 as there is risk of reduction of calcium levels in blood.

Any advice on how to minimize negative effects and survive the whole thing with the least possible damage is highly appreciated. If possible, please link to science, so I would have something to discuss with my doc.
