I'm not sure if this is the right place but here goes. Is is usual to lose weight whilst taking prednisolone? I've been taking 10mg a day for the last 3 weeks and have now lost 7lbs. I can't really afford to lose anymore having already lost 42lbs a couple of years ago for no reason. I thought this had stopped and I'd even put back on a few pounds until this last couple of weeks! If it gets worse I will have to go back to the drs but I don't want to stop the pred just yet as I've only just got relief from a dreadful flare and I was enjoying the improvement!
