I made a mistake...

I made a mistake taking my medication. I got prednisone and took all 6 pills at the same time for the first day. I just saw first day and didn't see the small print to divide them up into 3 different times. Am I going to be ok?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Only augmentin. I am diabetic so I take insulin, blood pressure pills and cholesterol pills.

No problem there--taking all six pills together won't do any harm and it will still work just as well as when you divided the prednisone dosage

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
