It's just the first days worth that I would be taking. But it's 6 pills. Day 2 is 5 pills, 3 is 4 pills, 4 is 3 pills I'm just afraid to take a whole days worth that's supposed to be spread out all in one evening. Yes that is right or day 1 is 6 tablets then day 2 is 5 tablets 3rd so you will be fine to take day 2 of 5 tablets after your breakfast.
Hope this helps you. I had the same question but 6 years down the road. You should not take all 6 at once. I got the same prescription today and on the back of the packaging gives you instructions on when to take them. It starts with only 2 before breakfast, 1 after lunch and supper and 2 before you go to bed. That is day 1 only. Check with your doctor or pharmacist NOT the internet ha if you are unclear.

Some doctors try to agree that steroids are not addictive, but Conigliaro thinks otherwise. It's a habit you have the rest of your life.
