Yes: Your HPA axis got suppressed by taking methylprednisolone pack and gave you a secondary adrenal insufficiency. Prednisone given as a single morning pill can do the trick and made your dizziness and fatigue disappear. See your doctor preferably and endocrinologist.

Not likely: Although the drug may cause fatigue, methylprednisolone is highly unlikely to be the cause because the drug should be gone from your body after fifteen hours. Some studies even suggest that methylprednisolone may treat dizziness. If the dizziness and fatigue becomes too much to handle or do not go away, consider visiting your doctor to discuss possible causes and solutions.
