Prednisone here i come! help...

I started prednisone today for the first time and Im really freighted by what I have read re: prednisone cause worst pain, depression, sick feeling coming off please let me know your experence of what happened when you first started. My doc got my lab work back and my immune system is whacky and he feels that we can get it under control with a mild course of prednisone. 10mgs first week and then tapper to nothing for the next 3 weeks. I have to be very careful of my mood disorder and sleeping problems so I am on the look out for that. Did it help you get out of a flare? I would enjoy some feedback!
Thank you!
