Help... Racing Pulse

Can anyone tell me if one of the side effects of Prednisone is a racing pulse? I had my sciatic nerve flare up and yesterday the Dr. gave me Prednisone to take for the next week. They are 20 mg pills and I am to take 4-4-3-3-2-2-1-1 per day over the course of the next week. After taking the first 4 pills I noticed my pulse was racing. My pulse has been 100-110 BPP all night. I know because I was waking up every hour (another side effect). Should I continue and take the next 4 pills? I called the Dr. office but haven't heard back. Any help would be appreciated.
