Hey I started 50mg of Prednisone a week ago...my Upper digestive symptoms are worse than previously (mouth ulcers, acid on tongue) and for some reason i still get a gassy flair in my lower right intestine. I think my appetite is increasing though - i supposed to stay on it for 4 weeks....did anyone find it took awhile for the prednisone to kick in - my specialist said I should notice a difference right away!
it worked quickly for me, i had only mild symptoms (e.g. slight discomfort in my stomach and bloating) the first day or two, but definitely by day three i was all better.

good luck.
It always kicks in for me right away, with a day or 2. Usually the only side effects I have are sleeplessness, hunger, and a lot of energy. Hope it gets better for you!
