Prednisone is taken just once a day, it is usually best to take it in the morning.
Taking it too late in the evening may cause difficulty sleeping.

It should be taken at the same time(s) each day to maintain even levels of medicine in your blood.

I took my first 50mg in the morning yesterday and I was so dizzy about 4hrs later. I am scared to take it in the morning today. Can I take it in the pm? I only have to be on it for 5 days?
