Did Anyone Lose Weight On Imuran?

Did Anyone Lose Weight On Imuran?

I'm wondering if anyone lost the steroid weight on imuran . my weight has been so uncomfortable and unhealthy..

I haven't been on steroids but I have lost weight since being on Imuran. I attribute it to moving more now the pain is less and also inflammation is not as bad.

I forgot to add I lost 80lbs after stopping prednisone. However I was huge CollinsCarol before starting any meds was so confused and upset and in pain, I looked 9 months preg as well, I had gastroperesis (delayed emptying) they say it is not a part of lupus, but I see a lot of lupus sufferers have these issues.

I was on prednisone over a year I gained close to 100 lbs...it was horrible and made my joints hurt even more I've since lost 60 pounds but still struggle alot to loose the rest..it comes on so easy but so hard to loose especially when ur joints and feet hurt so bad.it's hard to exercise..one step at a time I guess.
