Ok. When a medication makes you feel bad, call the doctor. Prednisone is to be taken with food and at forty take it 20 in the morning and 20 at evening meal.
Let the doctor know. Not taking this medication may well cause other problems for you. You might have to rethink this and stick with it depending on treatment. Also, never, ever take the drug and then suddenly quit. This can cause harm far greater than some sweating and an upset stomach. Talk to your doctor to better understand why you are taking this medication.
