Hello all. I believe this is my first post on here. I was prescribed Prednisone for a EDIT off sacro-illiac joint. This is my first time with oral steroids.....usually get the injection. My question is the dosage instructions on the bottle. Three tabs for 3 days. Do I take the 3 tabs at once....or spread them out? Sorry if this is a silly question. I think my brain was on pause while he was talking to me about it. Thanks, Paul.

    medications, your best bet is to contact your pharmacy.

    You can ask someone here on the boards, but since, we do not have any medical trained professionals, all you are going to get is opinions and personal experiences.

    Prednisone is a type of medication that needs to be taken specifically as documented. You will also find a titrate period will you start to decrease the amount you are taking...
