Yes, the steroid factor in predisione is what is doing it. My question how long are you going to be on this? Usually at this amount and strength you should be on a sliding scale downwards to the point of being off of it.
In so many words this should be a short term regime of this product.
Amen! This big bad boy of a drug causes "moon face", edema, weight gain, resp. etc etc etc. The first friend is right in that you should be prescribed a specific tapering plan . Please, find out how long your doc expects you to be on this med. Docs prescribe it all the time, but it should be weighed against the risks and other options. Just ask your doc what the plan is for this med . I am sorry you are experiencing these side effects, but most people do. I know side effects still stink. Take care of YOU! TWO
