I was wondering if anybody here has either taken long term prednisone or has taken prednisone throughout their life (pneumonia episode, chest inflammation, etc) and has been able to lose weight. I have taken prednisone numerous times throughout my life. On an average of 3-4 times a year for more about 10 years. Some years I would have a good one and only need 1. Have you been able to lose weight? I have heard with long use of prednisone you will get muscle weakness which I know and permanent weight gain. Do you have any experiences/success stories to share?
Like, I am wondering basically If I can repair my body now that I am getting older I am getting less sick. For the past five years I have only need 1 or zero times per year.
are you asking if you should take this to lose weight? unclear of question! :)
