Can prednisone cause weight gain?

    Hi Jb68!

    Yes it can. But it doesn’t always. I never gained weight while on Prednisone. Ever! Almost everyone I’ve known has either gained weight or had the infamous, moon face.

    Again, everyone reacts differently to treatment.

    Yes, between fluid retention and increase in appetite.
