In brief: Steroids

The answer depends on many variables such as how much prednisone you recieved and how well your other organs are functioning.
I assume you are talking about side effects of steroids such as restlessness. The half life of prednisone is 18-30 hours and generally side effects should abate within 1-2 days.
