Just starting Pred

March 16, 2011 at 11:36 am

Hi, I am about to start prednisolone on Thursday after my lumbar punch. She started me at 40 mg twice daily for 14 days. Then she did not put anything else on the bottle. Just stops after 14 days. Isn’t that a problem to stop prednisolone cold turkey? Shouldn’t you wean off the stuff? Did anyone have the insomnia from taking prednisolone? I am already an insomnimac and am worried that once I start taking the pred that i will never sleep.
