Thanks for the advice and replies. I am taking it in the morning, though I wasn't when I first started, wish my doc had given me this advice earlier! I started at 40 mg and have been on since the middle of June. I was originally tapering by 10 and then by 5, but both were too fast. Tapering by 2.5 seems to be working for me (fingers crossed). I have Ambien, but I am afraid to take it for more than a few nights in a row, I worry about dependency. Maybe now is the time to give in and just take it until I'm off the Pred. I hate the other side effects, but the lack of sleep just intensifies all of them and makes it really difficult to concentrate at work.
