for the Prednisolone (an oral steroid) to wear off? She was on a hefty dose from a week ago Saturday (2/21) through that following Tuesday (2/24). Sat: 2 tsp both am & pm Sun: 2 tsp am & 1.5 tsp pm Mon: 1.5 tsp both am & pm Tues: 1.5 tsp both am & pm She has been eating non-stop for over a week now! She's developed a bit of a tummy and even her backside has gotten bigger. She has grown out of 4 pairs of pants in a week. This is a child that is naturally quite thin! Shouldn't the excessive hunger started to subside by now?
