if its ok to take one dose in morning the other in late afternoon or evening.
H. Martí. Actually it depends upon the dose. If this is a dose pack with 5 mg pills I would spread them out. You feel better and get less flushing and discomfort. Higher doses at night may keep you more awake. Stay away from coffee or other caffeinated beverages past noon and you ought to be ok. I always split doses of twenty and over at morning and before bed. I don't have sleeping problems, however. I have staying awake problems these days. Lol. Be sure you always take prednisone with food. It is a stomach destroyer even on low dose. A glass of milk doesn't do it. Small meal, bowl of cereal or soup will help.
Split them. Dinner time is fine for the evening dose. It makes no difference for treatment levels as prednisone hangs around a good long time.
