You've got great info here! My 2 cents is prednisone SUCKS! I was on it over a year and yes all thise were side effects. Even though the side effects are HORRIBLE, please DO NOT stop taking the meds, you HAVE to taper off as the doctor instructs. Even after you taper you may have some of the side effects for a week or so, because I was on it so long I had them for quite a while and while coming off of it lots of joint pain. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
