I have been tapering down weekly. I am on 10 now and will go down to 5 next Thursday.
I really thought when I started tapering down that the side effects would start lessening, but I think the opposite has happened. I have been getting CRAZY hot flashes, increased hair growth, darkened facial hair, moon face, depressed, and moody. These are things I didn't have even when I was on 40 mgs.
So, how long were you on Pred, and how long did it take for things to subside after you quit/tapered down?
Thanks so much!
40 mgs of Pred
50 mgs of Imuran
