Im on 20 mg prednisone and I blew up. Although I am not eating much it feels very difficult to eat. I am out of breath and my chest is heavy while sitting. These changes to my body are hard to adjust to because i am.so bloated and its hard to carry extra weight around. Any tips? Doctor said he will taper off soon

There are far worse side effects possible with Prednisone, for example Avascular Necrosis (AVN).     Prednisone done got me a new ceramic/metal hip.

Many transplant centers use a Prednisone free protocol, which actually means no prednisone after a short initial period.  I am just over a year out on Taco + Cellcept w/o Prednisone.
