    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Anyone have any tips on decreasing the bloating that goes along with being on Prednisone? Finally starting to taper my dose (was on 60-60mgs since mid-December) so I'm hoping the bloating will get better over time...just hoping to fit into some of my clothes!

    For me, I eat/drink extremely healthily while on pred: lots of water, avoid salt & carbs, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, it has helped me a lot with most of the annoying side effects, except insomnia. Haven't found a fix for that one yet.
