Prednisone Tips

  •  Take as early in the morning as possible so as to avoid sleep problems at night.
  •  Supplementing a healthy diet with calcium will help to keep bones healthy through a course of prednisone.
  •  Reducing salt intake can prevent side effects associated with fluid retention.
  •  Taking it with meals could prevent stomach upset.

If you find that you are too energetic, you could try to:

  •  Do some deep breathing, yoga or listen to meditative music.
  •  Avoid caffeine after 4:00 or 5:00 P.M. to help avoid sleeplessness.
  •  Weight bearing exercises will help keep bones strong. If too difficult, stretching exercises in a swimming pool is also good.
