NO! it's not psychological! prednisone tastes awful! LOL! very very bitter. i hate the taste as well. it's not just you. in all the meds i take i ONLY taste the prednisone. and yes it ALWAYS gets stuck on your tongue forcing you to taste it. LOL. so believe me i feel your pain...when you go in remission you shouldn't have to take it anymore. at least i didn't once i got in remission. and YES the amount of junk food you can put down on that drug is unbelieveable! my biggest thing was frosted flakes! LOL! i ate soooo much frosted flakes AND i put a little bit of sugar in them as if they weren't sweet enough ya know? i didn't try to diet until after i was off of the prednisone. it would have been too much torture to do that. but when i got off of it i tried a low carb diet and lost all the weight. anyway i just wanted you to know that i feel your pain and everything will get better in due time. take care!! :lol:
