I'm 22 female and was diagnosed with AIH two years ago. I started treatment with a biopsy and was put on imuran when they found some cirrosis.
Since then the meds have been making me sick, so I stopped them due to that and no health insurance a year ago. Recently (a month ago) I got my health insurance set up and did another biopsy, which revealed the liver was even worse.
Now I'm starting on 40mg of prednisone a day for 2 weeks, then lab work, then down from there hopefully!
I'm only on my second to last day of the first week on this drug and already I can tell. I wake up with nightsweats and my back has been killing me! (I work as a caretaker)
I was just wondering if I would feel the other effects only being on this high dose for about one more week. Being younger, I'm a bit worried about the weight gain and moonface.
Any advice and knowledge is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
