Hi Johan,
I think I responded to your private email yesterday. Taking steroids can certainly lend to mood changes and behaviuoural changes, and cannot be condoned as a weight loss strategy. I do suggest that you employ family members to all sit down with her and voice their concerns and that your GF needs to seek some medical advice on the dangers associated with the use. I cannot condone any medications that are used for weight loss that are not supervised by a reputable medical professional. Ideally, she shouldn't need to be taking steroids at all, and merely eating and exercising moderately. I do not know your GF's weight and height, so am not sure whether she is also being unrealistic in trying to lose weight. Speak to your GF in a compassionate manner, but be honest in your concern. It might be helpful if you both go to her GP for some professional advice.
