Wysalone is a steroid and it is known to cause weight gain. Also it is known to cause loss of control of diabetes and increase of blood pressure. Lack of energy can also be an issue with steroids. I would advice you to talk to your eye doctor about the dosing of wysalone and how long do you need to take it ....
