Hi Ducky, Buffalo hump??? What?? And a puffy face? Thanks for filling me in, lol !
No i was only on it for 5 days before this bout. Now am to take it for 30 days. How long after you quit taking them does it take for the puffy to go away? And have you been on MTX? How about side effects from that? Let ne know. And Thanks.
As others have mentioned, everyone reacts differently to prednisone. Last year I was on 60mg for a while, and am currently on 20mg (for UC). Been on 20mg for two months now and I've never gotten moonface. Only side effect I've ever gotten from the pred. is insomnia, which isn't bad at all anymore.
