It was prescribed for Bell's Palsy. Can I expect any side effects?
At the very least heartburn. It will irritate your stomach. Nausea could be a problem. Here is what the manufacturer has to say about side effects. https://www.drugs.com/sfx/prednisone-side-effects.html
You took your first dose. How did it go? Flushing, sweating, shaking, heart pounding are some of the side effects. Sleepless, very hungry or very not hungry. You can get through it. Been on it on high dose for years. Be sure to take half in the morning and half at night with food. A meal not a glass of milk. Your stomach may be affected otherwise. Omeprazole may be something to try. Hope the prednisone helps. Write again if you have questions, Karen
