Advice & Tips
It's not as bad as everyone says! It is easy to gain weight on it, but watching calories helps a lot- you realize you're eating more than you used to and can stop it! Didn't get a huge "moonface" this time around. In fact, it's helped with arthritis.

About Prednisone (Prescription Drug)

Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid drug that decreases inflammation and suppresses the immune system. It is used for many purposes including relapses in MS; for rheumatic disorders; neoplasms; collagen diseases. Prednisone is activated by the liver into prednisolone.
