I think I have noticed a slight difference in it going down, not sure if it's wishfull thinking or maybe I am getting used to my moonface. I have heard that it can start to go down around 10mg and mostly I hear that it goes away within 3 mos of coming off of it.
I hope mine goes away b/c I will be on 5-10mg for the next year.
No it is not vain. We feel bad enough without adding this into the mix. Anyone who has had moonface understands. In some ways we can hide what we go through but moonface is not hideable.
Try to really cut down on your salt.
Good luck w/your presentation, just remember everyone has something, be it physical, mental or whatever.........
