Unless your doctor instructs otherwise, you should take it now, then proceed with your normal dosing schedule.

The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, insomnia, acne, fluid retention, and weight gain.

How did you resolve this issue?

I would take your Prednisone dose in the morning's, as one of the significant side effects is insomnia. If you take a dose at 12:00 am, you risk being up all night. Always try to take in the morning's if that's at all possible. Good luck.
