    Side effects of prednisone

    There are many side effects of prednisone but the worst for me is trying to get some sleep. I am on 50mg currently and I can only sleep 2 to 3 hours and I am also taking a sleeping pill but itís exhausting. Itís been a week and I have another month to taper off of it.

    Can anyone relate?

    The last time I was on it, my doctor let me take all the pills for each day by noon so as to hopefully mitigate the side effects by bedtime. It helped.

    Hi
    I always take all the prednisone in the morning after breakfast and I still do not sleep much.


    Thanks for the idea though.
