Subject: Re: prednisolone
Prednisolone is a steriod, one of the side effects is the puffy face.. i have it and hate it and even though i refuse to take the drug anymore as it made me put on lots of weight and i am struggling to lose the puffy face it just will not go.
I also found the drug didn't really work for me but each person is different.. it works for some and not for others.
You should start with a low dose and work up to the required dose, when coming off the drug you need to do so slowly say 5mg at a time each week.
My cat pearl takes it also 10mg a day for her very rare paw condition, she's put on a lot of weight too and is always hungry...LOL
I was also placed on anti-depressant but to help me sleep as i spent about 6 months without much.. been a lifesaver, one tablet and i'm gone till the morning. I take Amitriplyne (spelt it wrong sorry).
Anyway i would give it a try, its all about managing your quality of life.
