IV prednisolone and liver

If you have prednisolone intravenously - does that still have to be metabolised by the liver? Or does it bypass the liver?

Also, are regular prednisolone injections possible, or does that lead to too many ups and downs in steroid levels?

I'm asking because I really don't like oral pred at all - usual love/hate relationship - and I'm wondering if there are other delivery methods.

Thanks.
