Prednisone steroid meds

Prednisone makes you hungry and weight gain is a common side effect. Fat deposits may occur around your abdomen,face or back of your neck. Fluid retention can also occur and may manifest as leg swelling and a sudden jump in your weight on the scales. The higher the dose and the longer the treatment, the more likely you are to put on weight. You can control fluid retention by eating a diet low in sodium and eating more foods that contain potassium such as bananas, apricots, and dates. A diet high in protein and low in carbohydrates may make you feel fuller for longer, making you less likely to overeat.

I’ve been hospitalized three times in my life for asthma exacerbations. I’d be started on IV Solu-Medrol then transitioned to oral prednisone. I had the usual symptoms–insomnia, hair-trigger temper, constant hunger, racing heart, shaking and weakness. The third time, five years ago, was the worst, though, and different. I remember it like it happened yesterday. Instead of insomnia, I was tired all the time and would sleep 10-12 hours at night. I sweated so much that I couldn’t keep my hair dry; sweat would just run down my face and neck. This went on for weeks after I was totally off the drug. But the worst–the very worst–were the foot cramps. They would occur out of the blue. My toes would involuntarily cross over each other. I would scream and cry in gut-wrenching sobs from the pain. I wasn’t given taper instructions but remembered how it was done from the last two times, and I tapered myself off. Every inch of my skin hurt but as I took less prednisone, that went away. I have since been on a few courses of prednisone at much lower doses for much less time and I will get mild muscle cramps, not always in the feet.

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in june this year, i was admitted to hospital after my colonoscopy where i started on 50mg prednisone, i have been slowly tapering since then i am now down to and cant wait to get off them. I have been moody, had insomnia, my energy levels dropped considerably, to the point where i had to take time of work. I am a nursing student and i had no drive to study or go to class what so ever, my appetite increased and my motivation to exercise decreased. I have put on 7 kilograms and have had ‘moon face’ since bout a week into it. In saying all this, this drug saved my life, i used to have up to 15 bowel motions of diarrhea a day, severe cramping and abdominal pain, i was anemic and depleted of about every nutrient there is, dehydrated, i had dermatitis and eczema. This has all gone away since being on predisone combined with my other medications, if you are getting down about weight gain or the other side effects, just think of what you would have the horrible symptoms of this disease or a few side effects that are only short term ?
