I had the option of trying both syringes and the pens..
I prefer the syringe as opposed to the pen but both weren't so bad.

I'm really excited to start tapering off these stupid steroids and get my face back!! And maybe lose some of the weight I gained.. ugh.

yahh you don't want to rush into tapering meds too fast. It's a hard lesson we all learn. Plus, the Humira can take a month or two to reach full effectiveness.

Yeah me too Im on 12mg of methlypredisone and pentasa and just started the 4 syringes. On tuesday i do two more shots and then wendesday i drop another 4mg. My face just started to swell up. It does happen when im on a high dosage of steriods but when i start dropping my dosage. I think my body panics or something because steriods are the thing that works for me.
