Susac Syndrome - side effects of medicine

I have been diagnosed with Susac Syndrome. As treatment I have been prescribed Prednisone, 60mg/day, and Cellcept 2000mg/day. I am lowering my Prednisone dosage and should be finished taking them in 8 weeks. Cellcept is prescribed indefinitely. I recently got a rash on the palms of my hands that looks like eczema, I've had a few night sweats, my chest feels tight and my heart is racing. My neurologist advised me to see my primary care physician but I no longer trust her, after she prescribed this as depression...
Can anyone share information on side effects, how seriously I should take them, etc..?
Thank you in advance.
