About Prednisone
Prednisone comes as a liquid, regular tablets, and delayed-release tablets. Prednisone is known by the brand names Prednisone Intensol and Rayos®.

Do not crush, break, or chew the delayed-release tablet form of prednisone. Swallow the prednisone tablet whole with plenty of water. Prednisone should be taken with food.

Store prednisone in a closed container at room temperature. Do not freeze prednisone.

If you miss a dose of prednisone, take it as soon as you remember. If it's almost time for the next dose, skip the missed prednisone dose and take your next scheduled dose at the regular time.
