Depo medrol (methylprednisolone): Depends on many factors: the patient, the location, the amount and the placement are among the many variables.

Depends on what for!: It truly depends on what you are injecting it for. Some joints injections last long time. Carpal rtunnel, months. Nerve block, may be years if first successful. Can't really say unless specific problem is stated.

A 42-year-old male asked:

Is it ok to have a couple alcohol drinks while on methylprednisilone?

Are you legal age?: Not a great idea, but it's probably ok. It's never a great idea to drink when using potent hormones like corticosteroids as unanticipated and overactive emotional and psychic responses may occur. This is a question that should really be addressed to your subscribing physician as he/she is the doctor who knows you ...And your constitution...The best.

A 52-year-old female asked:

Can you take Xanax (alprazolam) while taking methyprednisolone ?

It depends: It depends on why you're on the methylprednisolone, and other problems you may have. Please talk with your own physician about this. Xanax (alprazolam) is a powerful anti-anxiety medication. Methylprednisolone may affect the same liver enzymes that process xanax (alprazolam). Your doctor is familiar with your personal health conditions, and we on healthtap are not.
