Can steroids, even at quite a low dose and for quite a short time, make you depressed?
Also, how soon, at how low a dose, can they make you start putting on weight?
I've been taking 5mg for a couple of months, I guess, and am feeling quite depressed. Which is most out of character. There could be external reasons for that as well, but it would be good to know if the steroids could be at least partially responsible.
And I've put on a pound or two - which may not sound like much but I'm only little (71/4 stone or thereabouts) so one or two pounds make a noticeable difference! And I can't shift the blighters!
