weight gain

I was diagonosed with spondiyalitis, when I developed a case of irritis about 6 years ago. With the help of heavy doses of steroids etc. I have it under control. I went off all drugs 3 years ago. About every 18 months or so I will get the inflimation back in my left eye. The last time was in July 05'. It went undetected for 4 months because I have a high tollerence for pain, evidently. When I went to my eye doctor in Nov. for new contacts he found it. He also found that I had developed "water bubbles" in the back of my eye, causing my vison to be blurry. The initial prescription of Prednisolone eye drops (1 drop 4x aday for a week) did not work. He then "hit" it hard (1 drop every hour for 7 days) then (1 drop every 2 hours for 7 days) etc. I am sure you can see where I'm going. I am finally down to 1 drop 2x a day. My question is can this much Prednisolone cause me to gain weight? When I was first diagonosed 6 years ago the steroid my Dr. put me on cause me to gain 20 lbs one month. Since being on the Predisolone eye drops since Nov. I have gained 10 lbs and I was wondering if this could be the cause. Thanks Kim
