    I have been on and off prednisone most of my life, recently i was put on prednisone 40 mg since June and still on that along with a bunch of other medicines. All I want to do is eat! i have controlled myself by eating tons of vegetables, fruit, whole grain bread and basically try to eat whole , but I do eat one dessert a day. I don't have much energy so I walk around the house ten minutes three times a day.
    Prednisone keeps me up at night and causes some crabbiness.

    I've been re-watching the Breaking Bad series on Netflix. Now I know why Walter White turned evil. Prednisone!

    A good number of us used Melatonin when on higher doses of pred. It helped me get some needed sleep!

    I have been on pred. during 1 stretch only - it was for 4+ years. Re sleep: I had no problem going to sleep but would wake at 0300 or so, and would often just stay up. Sleeping later returned to regular all night rest.
