It will make your muscles retain a lot of water and primarily make your face "puffy".. I'm on steroid medication and it really affects my face.

Keep a steady workout routine and eat bananas regularly (helps absorb the water)

Yes if the steroids are building muscle because muscle adds on to your weight so yes.

payneskinner is referring to anti-inflammatory steroids (decadron or dexamethasone) not the anabolic ones used to build muscle.

Medical steroids will, if you're a long term regular user of them.

Yes it will. If you dont workout you will get fat. If you workout then the weight you gain will be muscle

Yes, not only it will cause your body to retain water, it will also drive your blood sugar to go up. These are the most common side effects of steroids (the anti-inflammatory types, not the anabolics).

He wasn't asking about his blood sugar levels. Simply asking if he would gain weight.
