Prednisone is a prescribed medication that reduces swelling, irritation, and inflammation in the body for a range of conditions. While this powerful steroid drug is helpful for many, it also packs a variety of side effects, including restlessness, weight gain, and irritability.

Some of the side effects can be frustrating, but remember, you are not alone. We asked members from our community Facebook groups about the most outrageous (and downright hilarious) side effects they’ve experienced while using the medication. If you need a little comic relief from the side effects of taking prednisone, check out these illustrated quotes from others who can totally relate.
