I am already obese so big stomach but I really don't like looking in the mirror at this face!! I tapered to 15 mg. this week - two days now and already more blood showing up. Increased 6MP to 75 - hoping something kicks in soon. GEEZ! My skin is nice but now developing some dark spots - not sure if they are aging or prednisone.
Did I every tell you how much I hate this DD!!
