I think the longest I was on them at one given time was 6 weeks then taper but I couldn't get off the taper because I would flare again horribly only to have to start back on them again. So basically I was on and off (mostly on) for about 6 months.
The side effects didn't start hitting me until about the 4 month mark. I started getting the ole chipmunk cheeks, insatiable appetite, leg cramps etc. It takes longer for the steroid to accumulate because only a small percentage actually enters the bloodstream.
