I've been on them for 2 mos and on pred for 2.5 mos, I have moonface but that is probably b/c I am on 60mg/40mg of pred alt days. I believe the steroid e's really helped me thought it took a couple of weeks. My weight went up and down a few pounds, but today I am a couple pounds less than when I started. I have really been watching what I eat and have been trying to stay at 1500mg of salt or less a day.
