2 the following two days, then 1 for two days and 1/2 for two days. Can I take the multiples on days 1 ~ 6 all at once or do I have to split them up?
No - you should follow the instructions exactly as prescribed... especially with prednisone
The most common way to take prednisone is as a single daily dose taken with breakfast. You are best to take all the tablets together at once in the morning - just after breakfast to reduce stomach upset.
The morning is best because it coincides with your body's natural cortisol production. The reducing dosage is important as it lowers the risk of developing a condition called adrenal suppression which can have serious consequences.
