View Full Version : Losing weight after prednisone

I'm finally starting to taper off my prednisone and I'm wondering when this dastardly weight will disappear. As the prednisone dosage decreases does the weight as well? Please? ...or is it a battle we have fight to reduce and find the old face under the bloated one?

Any suggestions on what has worked for you? I really don't think I eat too much, although I know I could exercise more. It's just been in the last month or so that I've felt up to that tho. I'm not looking for skinny ...just not the puffy person I am right now.

After being diagnosed at age 15 I was put on a high dose of prednisone,
Which increased my appetite, gave me the "normal moon face" and made me pick up weight as well.

However after the dosage was decreased my weight gradually decreased back to normal as well.

Hope this is some good news, Some Excercise and esp a well balanced diet would be good too, infact a neccessity i think :)
