I think maybe you should tell your doctor how you feel. However, I was on prednisone long term and I will tell you I experienced 100lbs in weight gain, moon face, hot flashes, muscle spasms. Prednisone is one of those drugs that are not met to be long term according to my primary doctor. Perhaps they are taking you off it because of long term side effects? Perhaps they plan on using another medication? It sounds like you should make an apt and talk about what is on your mind.
