    Default Prednisone

    So i just took my first dose of prednisone. When does it kick in? A few days, or a few hours?

    I've taken oral Prednisone in the past, and I now get IV Pred for MS symptoms, and in both cases, the anti-inflammatory effect is almost immediate. I'll say within one day I noticed the effects.

    Same here, I take it orally and felt is working pretty fast, I've been on it for 2 months now and it really helps.

    It works very quickly. I can tell the first day and I can tell the first day I miss it. Sadly I am showing the efffects of the steroids already (cushings syndrome) but if my choices are life feeling like I feel without steroids or looking funny I will just cover the mirrors.
