I live in a golf community in Florida and play golf. Is this going to be a problem while I am on Prednisone?
No, you do not need to avoid being in the sun while taking Prednisone. You should take normal precautions such as using sunscreen and covering up during the middle of the day. Prednisone will not make your skin more susceptible to sunburn.

I've been taking hydrochlorothiazide for about a month. It says on the bottle to avoid sun exposure?
