I was worried about losing sleep and was advised to take the tablets very early in the morning,which worked for me.As to the squirrel cheeks / moon face.I think it depends on how long the course is.Same with appetite increase.Just make sure you have healthy snacks at hand,those you can tolerate of course.
Best of luck, it's early yet. Just watch the Increased appetite, unless you need to gain som weight. FoR me steroids are a miracle cure + 15 pounds! After a week or so of feeling great and living on little sleep, the appetite starts to grow and I give into it!
