If i take prednisone )20mg) and work out will my muscles build up and will i gain weight? I have lipoatropy in face arms and legs as bad as any "after" picture

Response from Dr. Pierone

Hello and thanks for posting.

Prednisone is a corticosteroid, an anti-inflammatory agent. Anabolic steroids (examples being nandrolone or Oxandrin) are the muscle building steroids. The management of your problem involves a careful review of your medications to see if any are contributing and perhaps treatment with testosterone or an anabolic steroid depending on your overall situation.

I hope this information helps and best of luck!
