Do not take Prednisone at night!! Its certain to keep u awake if u do. (May anyhow) if u have to take it twice a day i would get up really early and take dose #1 then no later than noon take dose #2 for the day. You dont want it being at its peak during the night when your trying to sleep.if this dont help and the lack of sleep continues beyond a day or two id call my prescribing dr and ask for something to help u sleep while on the Prednisone. Its not unusual to need sleep meds while your on it.
When i started taking prednazone,i didnt sleep more than 2 hours a night,for 3 weeks,then i decided to take the drug in the evening, instead of morning,wow! What a difference, now im sleeping. 6 to 7 hours a night, my advice is to try taking it in evening,i take it after dinner,around 7:00pm
Hope this works for you!!!
