Prednisone side effects

Do any of you guys know how long the prednisone side effects take to wear off? Im only 17 and the pred. really changed my body. This is an issue for me because i am very self conscious.

Re: Prednisone side effects

My sister has PM, I will try to get some info for you regarding length of side effects although I think most likely differs with each person.
Check back, O.K.?
