Mia, you may want to take some Ranitidine (available OTC) before bedtime. Predinsone can cause fierce gastroesophageal reflex, which can feel like breathing problems also. Taking 75 - 150 mg. of Ranitidine an hour before you lie down will usually prevent it. Start with 75 and increase if you need to. Good luck.
