My son started Prednisone 2 months back and has gained 2 kgs since then. I know that side efects with steroids vary from person to perrson but is this weight gain in the normal range or should we be looking for switching the steroid.
We are in Netherlands & here Doctors do not prescribe Deflazacort. Therefore, Pedinisone is the only option for us .......but if his weight gain is really too much then we definitely need to discuss this with his Neurologist.
One more thing is that even though he is on medication since last 2 months , doctor has not prescribed any supplements for him yet. My question was that is it not that supplements are started as soon as we start the steroids.
