HELP! I can't stand my body!
| janetms
I have had hives for two years. After many tests and doctors, the Allergist got me on Xolair six months ago once a month and 4 antihistamine tablets and antacid as my daily routine. That took the hives away, and I have seen traces of it that throws me to have Prednisone 30ml for a week. every two months. Right now I have alopecia and 15 extra pounds. I am not eating more but the pounds are piling up to the point of desperation. Everyday is a new thing between stomach ache, pain in my joints, red and burning sensation on my face or just feeling tired and sleepy. The dermatologist got me in hair treatment but I would like to know if any of you have found a way to lose those pounds efficiently. Any diet I follow seems to hit taboo or I could be months with no improvement. HELP! I can't stand my body!

I can almost guarantee you that your weight gain is from prednisone and not xolair. I am on both and have been on and off each for some while. Also my mother is a nurse. Ask your doctor if your prednisone pack is necessary while on xolair. Prednisone is known as one of the worst drugs to cause weight gain, especially around the face area if you are on the medication for a long time.

From my experience, your weight gain could easily be from the Prednisone. That is horrible for making you retain water, feel famished, gain weight.
