 another 10 (total 20) for a very severe poison ivy reaction.  You can

 un-satiable appetite.  I gained a pound a day I was on it.  Took me a
 year to get rid of the excess weight.   >>

I also have to deal with the realities of prednisone due to allergies.  Other 
side effects can include Cushings disease and joint degeneration.  I had to 
do one wean-off because of side effects, and now try to take it only in one 
large dose for an acute problem and not continue it.  It sure does relieve 
symptoms, but it is a two-edged sword!
