Unfortunately, all of my conditions including the COPD
respond well to Prednisone.
I frequently go ona 60 mg step down dosage for
2 weeks and in between I stay on 12.5 mg. 12.5, after experimentation was the lowest maintenence dose that was effective.
With careful diet, I've been able to keep the weight gain to 15 lbs, but the moonface is tenacious. At 12.5 I'm right on the edge. If I quit completely, it will go away, but as soon as I restart even at 12.5 mg the damn moonface comes back.
