I have been on prednisone for the last 3 1/2 weeks, starting at 40mgs and
tapering down by 5mgs each week. The medication was prescribed to treat and
disease, and so far so good in that it is doing its intended job.
I struggled with an eating disorder for over 10 years, so as one could imagine, hearing the potential list of side-effects of this medication was beyond terrifying for me on multiple levels.
However, I want to echo what FrankieD said in a previous post.
