been on pred for 2.5 mos,
first month 60 mg a day side effects, moodiness, leg/feet/hand cramps, night sweats, hot flashes
second month 60/40mg alt days, all side effects above are better but moodiness may be due to my handling it better and getting my flare under better control and taking potassium for the cramps.
I just got moonface about a week ago, I was bad with salt for about a week and it came on right after. For salt Doc told me to not go over 1500mg a day.
