    If I was to give you some advice it would be as follows:

    --Have your primary care prescribe you a Blood Sugar monitor. Test daily. Pred induced diabetes can hit any of us.
    --Go see your eye doctor and have your ocular pressure checked. Mine is high, most likely due to the Pred(ator). Hoping it doesn't turn into Glaucoma.
    --Benadryl gets me to sleep at night when all else fails and I really gotta sleep.

    Best of luck!!

    Thanks for all the responses and advice. I get to start my taper next Monday dropping to 30mg per day for a week then then down to 20Mg per day after another week. Then I will retest labs and followup with dr once again to check progress.

    I haven't noticed a "moon face" yet, but I definitely have a moon belly! I can't even button my fat girl jeans I gained 4 lbs in 3 weeks and it is all in my belly!

    I am trying to walk more to help with the weight gain and possibly help my sleep better. But hopefully the reduction will help the most!

    Thanks again!
