Hi Smoothwalker! I'm sorry you have the swelling and having to take the prednisone. I'm taking it now myself and boy does it make me eat!! To try to answer your question, how long it will take for your swelling to come down depends really on how bad the swelling is and what your dosage of the prednisone is. I know that this doesn't really answer you but your doctor should know around how long based on that! I hope this helps!!!
