Hey Good for you, sounds like you were pleased today with your Dr.
My hubby has been on the Prednisone several times. Yes it works, and he soon developed a moon face which he hated but it always goes away after he is off the med so he has lived with it. Also he had trouble sleeping, late to bed, early to rise.
Our one major problem was when he fell off the ladder and cut his lower leg over the shin bone. Very difficult to heal so we had some issues with that. Not a lot of skin on that part of your leg and we struggled to get the wound to heal, but made it with the help of a great Internal Med Doctor at the time.
I am sure you will receive a lot more input from the members. :)
