I recently had great advice regarding alcohol consumption while taking prednisolone and also managing time differences while on holiday.
I am currently in a 12 hour difference time Zone to UK while on holiday and my GP recommended that I stick to taking my medication on UK time. I suggested what DL recommended but was told that my recent blood tests was normal but white cell count up so must be repeated when I get back to the UK. I developed a cold a few days ago so that may have been the reason. I am worried about what I can take for a cold while on prednisolone. I have been told that the slightest infection could cause problems & require increased dosage. I am on 9mg & hoping no increase necessary.
Taking the prednisolone about 9pm US time is really affecting my sleep. Also it coincides with evening meal times & makes me cautious about mixing alcohol with it at that time. I have stuck to a glass of wine or cocktail. It was less of a problem when I took the medication in the morning.
Any advice regarding coughs and colds appreciated. Apart from that, I am having a good holiday
