The side effects are the worst - sorry to hear you are not feeling well. The biggest helper I have found is to be very very sparse with the sodium, it minimizes the moon face and overall weight gain for me. I'm not sure if it will help you or not, but I tend to get back pain (a lot of people get joint pain and/or back pain it seems) and at it's height at night I just use a heating pad to try and relieve it. Get some potassium also, eat a banana or two a day.
