In two weeks, I'm going to start taking Medrol (methylprednisolon), corticosteroid, due to my liver problems.
My hepatologist told me that I will be on 32 mg at start but then during 2 months I will be geting down to 4 mg, and then I'm supposed to be on 4 mg for 6 months.
Does someone have experience on that kind of taking corticosteroids? How bad are side effects? Do side effects start immediately or do they start after some time? Can I do something about my diet, does diet have any effect on easing side effects, like low sugar intake, and low sodium intake, but high potassium intake, and vitamin D intake in drops? Is there anything that can regulate side effects of testosterone increase which I read that cause acne, mood changes and unwanted hair grow?
I'm a girl in my 20s , I am a student and I am really scared of how it will effect my quality of life, since my disease is asimptomatic now.
