My son is currently on 20mg of prednisone. I am trying to figure out how much deflazacort would be equivelant and what the cost would be. He is less active and of course weight gain is more of an issue.
Also is there anyone who did the switch and noticed any differences regarding weight gain? Any change in the puffiness of the face?
From my small amount of investigating it seems the tablets come in 6mg or 30mg is that correct? So does your son take three 6mg tablet. Can the 30mg be cut in half?
