So I am on prednisolone 40mg a day (as far as I can tell this is the same as prednisone?) and all I want to do is eat. It doesn't help that I am currently signed off work and so have access to food 24/7. I am eating upwards of 2500 calories a day and cant seem to differentiate between hunger and boredom signals in my brain. Has anyone else had problems with wanting to eat all the food? Will my apetite reduce as my dosage reduces? Right now I am hoping that once I get back to work I won't have enough time to think about food but also before I was diagnosed I was eating under 1000 calories a day so I don't want to go back to that either.
