    Angry Can't sleep on Prednisone !

    On a Prednisone 7 day pack and cannot sleep ! As a teacher, must get up in am and drag off to work.....
    Tried Advil pm to no avail......
    I'd almost rather have the sinus problems than the prednisone !

    Re: Can't sleep on Prednisone !

    Hi,

    I was on quite high dosages of prednisone (for something else) and the only thing that helped me sleep was Zopiclone - but it leaves an absolutely horrid aftertaste in the morning and after several months one 7.5 mg pill was only good for about 3 hours of sleep. So instead of taking more, I asked my Dr. and was switched over to Trazadone (offcially an antidepressive but offlabel usage as a sleep aid) and have been using it now for a couple of years due to general insomnia problems. On a side note, as it is a antidepressant - it has mellowed some mood swings I used to have (but that's another topic entirely).
    Your results may vary

    For chronic sinusitis....and bad allergies.
    I take it at 6am.....just a one week med pack right now.
    It always does this ! Also get very jumpy and short-tempered on it.
    Isn't helping the sinuses either !! Oh well.
    Thanks for the reply.
    I'm going to try an Advil PM tonight.
