It is advisable to take it with food or milk, since it can cause stomach irritation. Make sure also to get enough potassium (most fruits and vegetables are good sources of potassium) and calcium while you take the Prednisone, as it causes increased potassium loss and reduces absorption of calcium. Don't take calcium with the prednisone, take it 2 hours before or after. Also, be sure to get enough water - Prednisone can make you dehydrate faster.
I hope you feel better soon - take care,
