Was feeling quite lacking in energy and not great first thing in the morning.... Had to take my dose of pred and then stay in bed laying down for at least 45 mins. before I could get up and feel ok. Noted on here a few people wake at 4am to take pills so they avoided the am slump. Didn't want to wake in the night for this, in case it became a habit, so decided instead to try taking 1 mg of pred before bed, and the rest when I woke in the morning. Seems to be working well for me so far as I am feeling much better on waking and certainly less wobbly. Haven't noticed any difference in how I feel later either. Now only on 4.5 mg in total, - reducing very very slowly is still going well. Hope this might help others who don't feel great in the morning.
