... should I be concerned?
You need to be calling your pharmacist or your on call doctor. Not knowing the dose you may have taken a dose that is completely safe or a dose that can shock your adrenal glands into shutting off until the excess prednisone is out of your system. Also, you may just vomit. Either way, you need to talk to your doctor asap about the error.
If you can't get your dr, call poison control and ask them, be ready to give the strength of the pill. There is a wide dosing range of it so it might not be too bad.
for instance if they are 5 mg tabs, that's only 30 mgs at once and not very bad. I probably wouldn't worry about it. Poison control number is 800-222-1222
