Avatar n tn Does anyone know why my fifteen year old chihuahua would be losing control of her hind legs and losing weight? She started kinda "skipping" on them like two weeks and about a week ago she started losing control over them alot, she sometimes can walk w/ a sort of dragging motion but then she loses control over them and they just give out on here, it really is saddening me and I would like to know if anyone knows why this could be happening and what i need to do for her..

Avatar f tn Hey everyone, I'm on methadone too for 6 years now and have gone from 115 lbs of firm, smooth muscle to 160 lbs of cellulite-covered, jiggly fat. Yum. I'm on 70 mg, just like you, Suziblues. Not a really high dose, but enough to pack on the pounds apparently. I have found that it's REALLY hard to lose weight on this stuff... but I agree that I'd rather be overweight than strung out again.
Avatar f tn What are the dangers of taking prednisone while on accutane? I have heard that prednisone helps with the initial outbreak on accutane but does the acne return once the prednisone is stopped? Is it worth taking the prednisone?

Avatar f tn s disease in 2009 I was put on a regime of Prednisone 50mg ever day. I gain 50 lbs in 6 weeks. I was on it for 5 months and have since been off but am having a very difficult time losing the weight. I am not able to go to the gym and do vigurous activity do to other medical conditions, and I dont dare take any supplements with my daily medications. I have reduced my calorie intake and now just finally and i seeing a little bit of results but my goal to return to atleast my pre-prednisone weight.
Avatar f tn I have put on a lot of weight after my J-poiuch. It was due to a few things: 1) The surgery cured my UC so I was finally getting the nutrition out of my food. 2) I became hypothyroid soon after. 3) All the years of taking prednisone messed up my metabolism. Hope you are doing better.
Avatar f tn Also, I believe I was on prednisone while I was in the hospital and I came home with it. I was on it for 14 days. Could the prednisone be causing this and how long does it stay in the system. I’ve always had a lot of hair and now the volume is considerably less, and my hairline is receding around the temples. My hair no longer has that healthy look to it. My hair changes from week to week. I’m so upset over this.
Avatar f tn she lost a dramatic amount of weight while she was on it. so it is defiantly true that you can lose weight while on the depo.
Avatar f tn I have been taking 150 mg a day of Welbutrin for about 2 1/2 months now and have noticed my hair thinning. I'm not losing hair it's just not coming in like it used to. I'm 57 year old female and wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Also, I seem to be losing weight and don' t have an appetite like I used to. AND I don't sleep very well.I want to stop taking this drug immediately but hear there are side effects to doing that. How do you stop it slowly?
Avatar f tn u really shouldn't try to lose weight while pregnant. but if u get bad morning sickness u may not have a choice. try to keep ur weight the same or if it bugs u talk to ur doc. good luck dear!
Avatar f tn I as actually losing weight prior to prednisone I had lost 20lbs now I have just maintained my weight while busting my butt at the gym. Hopefully the prednisone is helping u and where its draining heals soon. There is a book Jojo recommended called coping with prednisone that I found helpful it had some good tips for beating some of the bloat and how to deal with the other side effects too. The best advice for it is avoiding sodium/salt as much as possible and increase how much water u drink.
Avatar n tn My ferret is 5 years old now and last week she had a hairball obstruction that made her lose about half her weight. During this time, I moved her into a room closer to mine and took her to the vet the next day. The vet (who hadn't even felt her abdomen to rule out obstructions) diagnosed her with insulinoma (blood sugar 47) and gave me predisone which I gave to her for about a week (1cc twice a day.
158939 tn?1274915197 YES... Prednisone does affect your levels, Including short dosages.. My doctor refused to do my thyroid labs while i was on a 7 day DOSPAK, he said it would throw the numbers off. I don't remember how long either i had to wait, I think it was at least 2 - 3 weeks after discontinuing the Prednisone.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, there's no way to completely avoid weight gain or moon face as a side effect from prednisone. They are both known, common side effects and many people who have to take prednisone get them. I know about them first hand - I've had to be on prednisone quite often and often at VERY high doses, and I always get the moon face and weight gain with it, even if my eating/exercise habits don't change a bit.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant. They only thing I plan on doing as far as losing weight is to eat healthy foods and not to overeat like I tend to do and to also excercise. I know if Im prego I shouldnt overdo myself on exercise but light exercise and walking wont hurt! :) I just would like to minimize the chance of getting gestational diabetes or preclampsia while prego! :) Thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc are all welcome!!!
Avatar f tn Anyone heard of people treating while on lower dose prednisone? I have read the studies done of people treated with prednisone prior to treatment which wasn't great outcome wise.
Avatar f tn Any advise on how to lose weight while breastfeeding? I got down to under my pre pregnancy weight when my baby was 2 weeks old. Since then, I've gained 10. In the last week I've tried cutting calories but my milk supply has decreased. How do I lose it w/o losing milk?
Avatar f tn Has anyone else experienced weight gain around the stomach while on Lialda? I've had UC for 22 years and have been on several different medications. I was on Prednisone for 14 years and never gained a pound. In February of 2009 I was put on Lialda after a 4 year remission. I gained 10 pounds within two weeks, all on my stomach. Last November, I had another flare that lasted 4 months (I never lost a pound even though I was eating very little).
Avatar f tn My average healthy weight is 60kg and I'm 161cm tall, now I'm 75kg which is overweight. I just finished the 3rd month yesterday. Is there a way to lose weight without hurting the baby? Cuz it's not healthy for me to stay in this weight while I'll gain 12kg more while pregnancy. Nothing hard or hurtful, walking is hard here since I'm in saudi Arabia and the heat reach 40c. I'm looking for healthy diet that won't hurt the baby if I do it.
