I have been on pred since Sept 07, and when I got down to 5mg my facial swelling got a little better and so did my acne, I had to go back up to about
40mg and just began tapering a couple of weeks ago.
My neck is swallowing my face and I put on most of the weight around my chest/neck area, I got some nice purple strechmarks on the side of my chest, they are fading but still have 'the mark of pred!
from what I have heard it is approx 3mos after off pred, for the moonface and acne to go away completely. This seems to be a general avg I have heard.
