Beware of Insomnia

Beware of Insomnia

This post is part of a series of articles about the side effects of corticosteroids used as a treatment option for osteoarthritis.

Taking steroids in the evening may prevent you from easily falling asleep.

Ask your doctor if you can take your entire dose in the morning.  Also try to establish a regular hour fr falling asleep and make sure your room is dark, quiet, and comfortable.
