Of course they can effect you in many ways, and can certainly make you gain weight. It depends on the particular drug in question and the dosage.
My mother is a transplant patient taking prednisone, and it certainly has given her a moon-faced appearance, though that didn't happen until she had been taking the drug for a while. Prednisone can also cause rages and behavioral changes, though in the case of my mother this has not happened--thank goodness!
I think that you should be mentioning your concerns to your doctor.
