Hi docs, would asthma steroids make me gain weight?

In brief: Depends

If you mean the inhaler steroids, it is not likely since most of the drug does not get into your system. On the other hand, oral tablets or liquid can cause this problem. It will depend on how much and for how long.
Talk it over with your physician. Good luck.
