Hi! I am new here. I was diagnosed with behcets last November 2017. I have been taking methylprednisolone since then and now it has been tapered to 8mg medrol once a day. My face is really puffy, though i know it is the side effect of the medicine. I just wonder when it will subside? Or will it ever subside? Since my dose is already low. I started on medrol 16 mg 3 x a day . Just wondering if there is anyone here who has the same experience with me.

Hi, I find it subsides as the dose gets lower, and you will go back to normal. If you have to increase the dose at some point it comes back.
