Oh, yeah -- take the pred early in the AM - it has a tendency to keep us awake if taken near bedtime -- and some people who are sensitive end up taking a OTC or prescript
ion sleeping aid of some sort.
It will give you terrible carb cravings -- try to avoid white carbs & sugar if your diet allows, and it's easy to gain "prednisone weight" (round face, bloated tummy). It's supposed to drop off when you stop prednsione, but my observation is that it takes a LOT of effort for the tummy part to go away.
