Yes your weight will drop from water weight. It does depend upon what dose you had and for how long, however. Give yourself time. 12 days at low dose is different than a higher dose, say 20mg.
Also your appetite may suddenly come back during this time. If you get exercise and are careful with diet you will be fine.
