Do you mean Prednisolene? I was on them once and they made my head grow - seriously - and I put on lots of weight. I watched a documentary recently about someone else who was on the and their head too got bigger. Just be careful what you take and ask yoursefd if you really need it and can you find a safer alternative.
Yes prednisone, been on many many years, was put on them continuously by a specialist, and while I’ve put weight on, I can honestly say my head is the same size as it’s always been lol I certainly wouldn’t be taking them if I didn’t need to,I’ve never in my life heard of anyone’s head getting bigger as a side effect, what dosage were you on newatthis and for how long,
It's prednisolone in UK and prednisone most other countries. I had it for six years for polymyalgia rheumatica, on a tapering dose until my inflammatory markers reduced sufficiently. I never had to get a bigger hat! But photos from that time show me with the 'moon face' that's a typical effect of steroids.
I have been on and off prednisolone for 43 years and the size of my head has never grown. It's big enough already. However, I do put weight on when I'm on it. It can also cause depression. I use it for both RA and brittle asthma. Without them, I wouldn't be writing this. A necessary evil.
I have taken a lot of Prednisilone over the last 18months. I have found they make me hungry, a lot of the time and I gained weight.
They really are a necessary ‘evil’ and have a rapid and very welcome impact on my condition. I have been experiencing intermittent dizziness and my GP helped with additional meds. Regular review and adjusting of my medication is the other thing which has helped. Yes, high temperatures are certainly a challenge.
