I've generally found that the side effects are related to how well I've been when I've started taking pred.
There have been a couple of times where I have been really not well when I've started taking it and in those cases, I've felt side effects much more than when I've taken pred to knock a flare on the head early.
It effects different people in different ways so I would not worry too much about
side effects like moon face, sleeplessness etc. The most important thing is that it is doing its job and that you can taper down and maintain a solid remission!
