I am on a low dose maintenance dose of pred. 5 mgs, in addition to CellCept, and Plaquenil.

I must admit, that although..I do feel better, I have gained a lot of weight and it makes me feel worse..(does that make sense)?. I feel swollen, and uncomfortable. I am retaining a lot of fluid, my hands, legs and feet are swollen
since, being on the dose for the past 3 mos.

I am going to ask my dr. if I can wean off of it again. I am diabetic, and I crave sugar so badly on the pred..I know, my Rhuemy will agree, to let me wean off of it..He is very trusting of my own judgement and feedback.

I wish you the very best..Kate.
