Prednisone causing veins in hands to bulge?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hello, apologies if this post has been posted more than once, first time here and just learning the ropes.

Im in the middle of an asthma flare and am on 50mg of prednisone (this is my 2nd day). This is not my first experience with prednisone, have been on it many times. Also on my regular Proair inhaler, codeine syrup (Guaifen). I noticed the veins in my hands are HUGE and I figured that it may have something to do with the meds, although Ive never noticed this reaction before.
