As you know Prednisolon has some side effects like having a moonface and excess body water. Do you know how long will it take for my body to go back to normal?
Were you taking prednisolone for a short or long time?
Side effects associated with long-term (months to years) oral corticosteroid therapy include weakening of the immune system, elevations in cholesterol levels, and weight gain. These side effects usually improve when you stop taking corticosteroids. Long-term use of corticosteroids may also cause brittle bones, fat deposits on the face and back, thinning of the skin, and cataracts in the eyes. These side effects may improve but usually don't go away completely after stopping the drug. In children, long-term use of oral corticosteroids may cause stunted growth.
The most common side effects reported with the short-term (days to weeks) use of oral corticosteroids include a bigger appetite, weight gain, upset stomach, headache, mood changes, and trouble sleeping. Some people may also have upswings in blood sugar and blood pressure. In general, all of these side effects go away after you stop taking corticosteroids. These side effects occur less often if you take smaller doses of the drug. Take corticosteroids with food to reduce stomach upset.
