I had bronchitis for three weeks and my dr prescribed Prednisone. I got over the bronchitis but the Prednisone made me gain nine pounds in one week. I have since gained another twelve pounds and can't seem to lose. I have never had an issue with my weight until I started the Prednisone.

Was taking this for chronic sinusitis for 19 days starting with 40mg for 10 days 30mg for 3 days 20mg for 3 days then 10mg for 3 days. Had trouble staying asleep, sweating especially at night, light headaches, hunger- and when I tapered off to the 10mg dose, I noticed that my lips became red and swollen. Overall, it did improve my sinus condition.

I have been on and off prednisone for many years now for Ulcerative Colitis. It is no longer helping my disease on its own. It worked well to keep my disease under control but the side effects have proven to be more bothersome than my disease itself. I experience confusion, brain foginess, dry skin, heart palpitations, anxiety, headaches, moon face, increased appetite and weight gain, periods of s ... Show Full Comment
