Welcome to JA!
Thanks for the question..
The stomach pains can be treated by avoiding precipitating factors like beverages, hot and spicy foods... with the help of antacids like gaviscon syrup and acid suppressing drugs (PPIs) like prevacid available over the counter. Since the steroids cause stomach problems by weakening the mucosal barriers of the stomach so the best strategy is to reduce or stop taking steroids and the symptoms usually resolve gradually after stopping the steroids
The constipation can be treated with eating high fiber diet and drinking plenty of fluids and if needed with otc stool softners like docusate sodium.. if you have more questions, plz use reply button to chat.
