Yesterday I took my last prednisone.
During the taper some of the side effects have disappeared or lessened. I am sleeping a little better at least. Some of the others seem to have gotten worse as the levels in my system have continued to change. I have been incredibly moody, I still have moon face, I am really hungry in the evening and can't stop snacking, acne and hair growth are worse , and I can't think.
When you tapered off prednisone, how long did it take for the side effects to go away?
