  • First dose of prednisolone in the evening?

    Hi there,

    Where a patient collects a prescription in the evening for prednisolone would you advise them to wait till the next morning to take the first dose?

    Not sure, when I had first dose of 40 mg after Polymyalgia diagnosis, I took it in the evening. Next morning when I woke up could raise my arms above my head and get out of bed unaided. Had to take declining dosage over a year.

      No. If the condition requires prednisolone then it usually needs it now. I would advise that they may have trouble sleeping but that is normal and no reason for concern and to take subsequent doses in the morning.

        I feel taking one dose in the evening should not be an issue as long as subsequent doses are taken in the morning time.
