Taking prednisone dose, morning and evening
I'm down to 2 1/2 mg of prednisone, start at 10mg two years ago. When from 10 to 7.5 to 5 and now 2 1/2 doesn't seem quite enough but 5 has been giving me more side effects. I'm splitting the 2.5 in half, half in the morning and evening. My rheumatologist wanted me to take 5 mg. every other day, told her that doesn't work for me, I pretty much have to have a consistent dose on a daily basis. She insist I take it the way she prescribed, giving no reason why I shouldn't take it in a split dose. I looking for a new rheumatologist. And possibly trying Actemera, maybe. It's a tier 5 drug with my insurance, so probably won't be able to afford it. Is there a problem with taking prednisone it at night? doesn't seem to cause me sleep problems.
