With prednisone, it is important that you follow the Dr's instructions. Tapering too fast, without giving your adrenal glands a chance to step and and produce your body's natural cortisone, can do horrid things! Cortisone, whether natural or supplemented, is necessary to keep your heart beating as well as some other critical processes.
You might make sure you are drinking plenty of water and not eating a lot of sugar or white carbs - that can help with bloating, weight gain, and headaches.
