Hi,
 
Has anyone tried doing prednisone some days on it and some days off?  It is absolutley knocking me out and all I want to do is sleep all day when I take it.  I am starting a new job and tomorrow I have a meeting where I will meet everyone. I am so afraid I will be so sleepy and not very impressive on my first day.  I am thinking of not taking the pred at all tomorrow.  Any thoughts from anyone out there on alternative ways to take pred.???

If you are taking it in the morning and it makes you sleepy try taking it at night instead. I woulnd't just stop taking it because you may have withdrawl symptoms that are worse than being sleepy.

75mg Imuran starting 8/23/07---fingers crossed!
Prontonix once daily for acid reflux, zofran twice daily for nausea
