I had a sever allergic reaction am wondering if prednisone will cause weight gain using for 2weeks or is it just water retention??
You will loose it when stop the med.
It does cause weight gain but no worries if its just a very short term treatment. For longer term treatments for longer than a week or 2 you will gain actual weight. However yes u can lose the weight like any other weight gain once off the Prednisone.
