methylprednisolone

hi

ive just finished taking a course of steroids (500mg a day) and noticed ive put over half a stone i didnt over eat i generally eat healthy, will the weight go as its starting to depress me as ive worked so hard to stay slim

my question is does the weight stay on or will it go

my question is does the weight stay on or will it go

Had the same steroids about 5 years ago and i put on a stone during the course of taking them , but i lost the weight just as quickly after id finished taking them

Hi I had two courses within 3 months of one another last year and I’m still struggling to get the weight off. I don’t wanna dishearten you but its been difficult for me it won’t budge but it’s the meds and you need them so I wouldn’t worry you’ll get it off eventually x

Ive just started a five day course today for optic neuritis, Im worried about the side affects too. Just wondered how successful you found the course?

To be honest they helped with my optic neuritis although it did last for 8 weeks (possibly would have lasted longt without steroids who knows?). They helped with vertigo at first but I did struggle with lasting dizziness and still do months later, everyone’s different though hope they help you. X

Had Depo-Nisolone injections] in both knees today. Aching a little but severe pain easing. I have been advised by specialist as long as shots work to avoid having knee replacements, as that is a long time to recoup. Know more here [edited]

[/quote] Hi robert, I looked into the ijection n told dad about it coz he’s got artiritis in both hips n spine, the pain I’ve seen him go thru is horrific, his idiot of a dr refuses to refer him to a pain management clinic and won’t even consider him for a hip replacement as being 67 is too young, after many months of asking from dad he gave him the morphine patches instead of cocodamol, I hope the dr has sense n gives it him instead of being a sadistic sob
