I found out today also that muscle aches and weakness are a side effect of the prednisone. As far as the ravenous appetite, I totally understand.
prednisone dose gradually (taper) to allow your body to adjust. Although cataracts, weak bones, increase appetite and thirst may also occur. If you are diabetic.
