I did three prednisone tapers this summer that started at 80 mg/day. 60 didn't quite get it. I think the last round helped keep my cycle in check until the verapamil took effect (about two weeks).
I had the same side effects as Amanda -- 30 pounds, moonface, a bit of acne, achy joints (especially after tapering off).
Be careful with your taper -- don't go downward in dosage any faster than what you listed (I did and it *really* hurt). I had to go back on at 10 mg/day and re-taper off.
Best of luck to you!
