Pred does have that effect. I'm so glad you have found relief. If you have to take it anyway, it with a pill type DMARD may well be all you need to control your disease. The unfortunate part is Pred's well known effect on appetite. I am down to 4mg, am told I will always have to take it, and it still makes me hungry! Still, life is a tradeoff, and comfort is wonderful! God Bless!
