There are some side effects, but the most common is reflux from taking prednisone. Talk with your physician about the side effects to see if its a good fit for you ...Read more

May hav doubled my Prednisone. Prescribed10mg tab.1 tablet twice a day. Took morning dose fine but think that I might have taken evening dose twice.
Are there any longer-lasting glucocorticosteroids? Prednisone seems to work very short-term; inflammation returned already (next morning).
Yes, but more toxic: For some people, Methylprednisolone lasts and works a little better and than prednisone.
