I've been on Pred many times through out my life. The only side effects that I have had are: Energy boost, Eating everything, night sweats, and when tapering my knees would hurt really bad and i would have to slow down the taper.
Other then that the drug has worked miracles for me, do I like taking Pred? NO! But there are times I need to do so to stay alive.
I don't know if it is the Pred or the disease, but the only major issue that I have is Oste
opena and it is getting worse. Is it Crohns or Pred? I can't answer that.
Keep your chin up and try to stay happy and do alot with the extra energy that you will have to keep the depression away.
Wishing you well.
