Can taking just 10mg of Prednisone make me so emotional and want to eat a lot?

I'm just on 10mg of pred, but I seem like I could cry at the drop of a hat. I just got off my birth control, b/c it was a mandatory thing for 6 months for hyperdisplacia. I don't know if it's being off YAZ or being on the pred just for the past 4 days that's making me feel sad. Any comments?

Well, that's a definite side effect, so probably so!
Just knowing why might help. Please don't be hard on yourself.

I would say the eating part YES! I'm not sure about the emotional part. When I'm on Pred, it seems to make me get angry easier but never sad. That emotion could be from coming off the BC.
