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.
