I have noticed that everytime I start up again on Predisone, it's like my body has memory. It doesn't take long at all (within a few days) before I'm feeling crazy and the rest (bloating, wt. gain, etc) are soon to follow. My MD said it's possible that it builds up in your body so it doesn't take as much to set you off in the side effects... great.
