I'm right there with you girls. Hating the side effects of prednisone. I am currently at 40mg..
The moon-face and weight gain are definitely associated with prednisone.
I HATE these side effects.
I've been on pred before and have had same things.
I'm constantly hungry, and continuously eating. Luckily, I've been pretty good on what I'm putting in my mouth, but still consuming a lot. I exercise approx 2hrs everyday to try to counteract some of it, yet have still gained about 5 pounds in the last two weeks. I'm getting so mad and frustrated.
I can't wait to be off the EVIL prednisone... even though on the flipside I AM very grateful that the pred works for me and stops my flares.
