In brief: Systemic...
Systemic steroids can lead to weight gain but, inhaled steroids are used because very little of it is absorbed systemically, thus avoiding this side-effect.

In brief: Rarely
Any inhaled steroid can have systemic effects if taken in high doses.
However, another cause of your difficulty with your weight may be present, talk to your physician.

In brief: Q-var with weight
Q-var is very good medication for asthma.
It is a steroid with very little absorption into your body. I would believe that there is very little chance of it causing a weight problem.
