Hi I was recently diagnosed and have been given prednisolone 5mg starting at 4 per day for week one then 3 per day week 2 and so on total time 4 weeks, my Rheumatologist says if I get relief from symptoms while on these then I`ll be moved on to methotrexate. Anyway what I was wanting to ask is what are classed as usual side effects from prednisolone? I`m about to take day 2 dose (4 x 5mg) and I`ve been a bit concerned that I`m so hot/feel flu like and have very red face! Is all this normal? Would love to hear from anyone regarding this or just as a contact.....I`m finding this a lonely illness......no one except specialists have heard of it and certainly people do not understand what it is Debs x
