Hy everyone, i am new to this forum. I just wanted to share my case with you all. And get some advice.. i have been on steroids for almost 5 years.. i have lupus nephritis too. I wanna know if anyone have any idea about how long it takes the steroid side effects ( moon face, weight gain etc) to go away after reducing the steroid dose. I started with 50mg per day... now i am taking 4mg per day.. i have gained 10kg in this 5 years with steroids. And i have a moon face and alot of belly fat.. thanx in advance for ur reviews..
