Is it really the prednisone or will it just increase my appetite so I will want to eat more? How does the weight gain blamed on prednisone really work?
It increases your appetite. I went 6.5 months with the VA telling me nothing was wrong with me, go home boy, here's some drugs I went from a healthy 188 lbs to 170 lbs in that time period. //// Then when I finally started getting prednisone treatment, I went from 170 lbs to 205 in less than 6 months.
