    Hi Wendy that's alwful bless you, I would ring the hospital first I think and see what they say, I hate all these side effects they are worse than the condition at times and mess your body up in my opinion. I hope you get sorted soon

    Sorry to hear of your plight. But you do not know if it is due to your meds or you if you have something else going on. You should ask your rheumatologist, not us non-medical people.

    I would telephone your physician first.

    Not to worry, many other effective medication is available.

    I have been on prednisone for a while now. My face is all puffy from the moon face prednisone can give you. It is pretty common, but I would still call your Dr. Anyway to rule out an allergic reaction.
