prednisone advice

I started prednisone this week at 100mg. I take my dose first thing in the morning to prevent insomnia but by 8-9 o'clock at night I feel very lightheaded. Would it help to split my dose to morning and afternoon doses to prevent the lightheadedness?

Re: prednisone advice

Check with your dr. I was on 60mgs daily starting in Feb2012 and was awake for 2 to 3 days at a time. Once I got down to 40mgs daily dr advised take all in the morning by 9am so I could sleep. I am now down to 7.5mgs prednisone daily and still have trouble sleeping. I look forward to getting off prednisone.....
