... When do side effects go away (0 replies)
... I have been on 80 mg of prednisone for dermatomyositis and have recently been reduced to 40 mg. At what point do some of the side effects (sleeping difficulty, facial swelling, excessive hair growth, etc.) go away? Do you have to be on a lower dose for them to decrease? (6 replies)

I gained a lot of weight on 80 mg. Kept it at 40 mg. Also, had some mood changes, sleeplessness, round face, etc. It wasn't until I was off that the weight fell off. But, I had to really count the calories. ... (6 replies)
