steroid treatment

Please login or register to post on this thread.

my mom is undergoing steroid treatment and is complaining of weight gain. is this normal?


I used to have asthma and they prescribed prednizone for me. I did not gain weight though.


from what i know about this, the steroids are supposed to help the sacs inside the lungs expand faster so that your mom can breath easier.


weight gain is one of the side effects but for me it outweighs the benefits. my nephew is asthmatic too and has undergone prednisone.


I just think that its not a good side effect considering that she is already in her 60's.
