what time to take prednisone?

Morning: Prednisone can affect your sleep, so best to take in the morning. Also, taking it in the morning will best mimick what the body's own production of steroid is like.

Morning: If you are taking it once a day, then prednisone is best taken in the morning as some users have trouble sleeping while taking the medication.
