I have spent my life on and off prednisone, a steroid medication, that, for one, helps keep allergy conditions under control when they flare up past what is helpful for the body. It sounds like this was true in your case, as well, and your doctor decided to prescribed steroids. Normal reactions to steroids include: insomnia, increased appetite, and irritability, and a slight rounding of the face. However, at the short course prescribed, these side effects should be minimal if there at all.
