Many of the symptoms of lupus result from inflammation in various tissue of the body. Cortisone has been found to have a marked anti-inflammatory effect. Cortisone and its derivates are steroids, the most effective anti-inflammatory drugs ever. They can reduce the swelling, warmth, tenderness, and pain associated with inflammation. The most common side effects of steroids include appearance of acne and increased appetite that is leading to gaining weight. So if you seem to be losing weight, which is quite impossible but is still happening to you, you should go back to your doctor and ask him for the advice. His opinion will be the most adequate.
