      While it helped me get my life back to normal, prednisone made me sweaty, gave me acne, and made me gain 25 lbs. How do you cope with the side effects of prednisone? Mentally, how does it feel to take a med that helps with MG but changes so much about your body?

      Right now, it seems that my doctors blame all my symptoms and pain on prednisone. Therefore, it has been a sort of limitation when it comes to getting medical answers that likely are not all linked to prednisone. However, I am almost entirely off. I started at 60mg nearly a year ago and have dealt with crazy emotions, terrible sweating, weight gain, agitation, acne, face swelling, and loss of appetite.

        I definitely had face swelling too. The highest dose I was ever on was 80mg but it was only because I was having a crisis. My normal dose for a few years was between 40-60mg.

        That’s crazy your doctors blame your symptoms and pain on prednisone. But I’m so happy to hear you’re almost off of it. For me, the side effects went away pretty quickly once I stopped taking it.
