YES _ WIRED!!
Only thing that helps me is the Xanax I take before I go to bed and taking the prednisone as early in my day as possible. I started on 40 mg. and when tapering it got better and now on 20 mg. not a problem and I get up two or three times in the night to pee - overactive bladder doctor says! Had it for years - I am 68 and it runs in my family!
