Is the weight you gain on prednasone just water weight?

All I have eaten while on the 40mg pill for five days is fruits, veggies, lean protien, and whole grains. I've drank lots of green tea and water.

Re: Is the weight you gain on prednasone just water weight?

In 5 days time, it is probably mostly water weight, but Prednisone makes people gain fat weight over longer periods of time because it tends to increase appetite. If you are going to be on a relatively short course, fat weight gain shouldn't be much of an issue especially if you watch your intake. Water weight will go away as you taper down and off the drug.
