I was given some medicine (prednisone) that says 'take with food or milk'. I usually only drink non-dairy (soy or almond) 'milk'. Is there something specific to dairy milk that might effect the absorption rate or other effect of the medication that might not be in other 'milk'?
Hello. I generally take prednisone in the morning with breakfast. At very high dose over 25, I split the dose and part with breakfast and other half with evening dinner.
This does help protect against GERD. I have found milk not to be as effective over time. It really depends upon how you feel and if you suddenly get heart burn. Safest is with food.
Any other questions? Please write. Karen
