Prednisone Dosage Help

I went to the emergency room the other day because I thought I may have had a obstructed intestine from my Chron's disease due to pain I was getting, but they found out during the X-Ray that my intestines were inflammed and I was having a flare up. The doctor prescribed me with 5 MG Prednisone with 100 Caplets. The first two days I am suppose to take 12 at once (60 MG), then another 12, then 10, 10, and so on for a little over a week. I was wondering how long I should wait to take my new dose. I picked up the prednisone really late last night and didn't get to take it until 11PM Eastern, so would it be safe to take the next 12 Caplets at around 3 Eastern or should I wait longer? Thanks for the help!

Re: Prednisone Dosage Help

You should take your daily prednisone around the same time everyday, a few hours difference here and there is fine.

Hope you're feeling better soon!
