Lori - the side effects of pred will go away sometime after you are off the pred. Since you're still having D, you might want to talk to your doctor.

The pred side effects are awful, I really feel for you. Hang in there! I hope you're feeling better soon :)

Getting rid of that moonface is a matter of diet and exercise. I think your body needs to process the fat it stored in your face:( Good luck!
