Most advise to take it in the AM but if it works better for you at night then do it. As far as the taper goes the most important thing is really the percentage of the taper, not the number of mgs in the taper. Going from 40 down to 30 is a 25% taper. Going from 30 down to 20 is a 33% taper. Going from 20 down to 10 is a 50% taper. The bigger the percentage of the taper, particularly at lower doses, the worse "withdrawl" symptoms you will encounter and the better chance of the taper not working. Most people don't realize that the most important part of the taper is the lower doses from 10mgs on down because those taper percents can be quite high. To help with this you can taper by 2.5's or better yet get some 2mgs pred or 1mg of pred.
