Default Anyone else on Prednisone?

Hey all

Just wanted to see if anyone else out there is on Prednisone? I have been taking it for the last 3 months and will be on it until June. Are you losing weight?

I'm not on it now but have been in the past. It's a battle, but you can lose weight but very, very slowly while on it. I have severe asthma and when I need Prednisone, breathing is more important than losing.

I took it after a bout with pneumonia, it was needed, I did gain quite a bit of weight, and it was slow to lose, but I wont complain, I swear that stuff saved my life. God Luck and just watch what you eat, and all will be fine. :-)

Thanks for the info ladies.

I know right now I am on it for a very good reason and thats the important part. I don't like the MANY sideffects that come with it, weight gain, moon face, and loads of others. I know to watch salt intake, and to keep cals low, but I guess other than that I will just have to live with it for the time being...it temporary, at least I know that much!

Thanks again
