I have been on Pred. for just over a month now, initially on 15mg then 13mg and just gone down to 11mg. I have noticed a significant development of hot flushes both day and night. I am post-menopausal but was really pleased I wasn't getting these at all- until now! If they are a side-effect of steriods, what is the best way of treating them? Also, I am about to go on the intermittent fasting diet- has anyone got any experience of this?
