Hi Gang

I was wondering, if I am only getting 1.5 liters (sorry, not too sure what that measurement is in imperial) of steroids over three days, do I need to worry about weight gain and/or water retention?

I did my first 500 ml this morning...not noticing anything yet.

Hey MM,
Don't worry about that too much.  I had such bad heartburn and stomach upset that I lost 8 pounds over a two week period.  Everyone reacts differently to it.  Just drink lots of water and take good care to eat healthy and all that good jazz.  I hope it goes really well and that you are feeling better very soon.

I have had a total of 4 of those  since 1991. You might experience a little swelling and weight gain but they do give you alot of energy. So much that my neurologist told me to take a couple of Benedryl to help me sleep at night. Good luck.
