Thank you for your query,
Continue the medication as per your doctor advise and be in regular follow up.
The side effects are like weight gain, excessive hair, gastritis
and cushingoid facies.
But most of the side effects will subside gradually once the steroid
has been stopped after completing the treatment.
Increased appetite is due to steroid effect.
Most of the nephrotic syndromes are due to minimal change disease
in children and relapse is rare.
But at this point it is very difficult to tell who will get relapse and who don't get it.
Effective treatment of respiratory and urinary tract infection
will usually prevent the relapse if they are associated during the course.
Hope I have answered your query.
