Do you see less side effects with a 4mg Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack? I just started today and all the side effects seem scary.

Do you see less side effects with a 4mg Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack? I just started today and all the side effects seem scary.

Should be a reason.: As a rheumatologist, I have never prescribed a dose pack. Prefer sliding scale of presnisone, wh ich causes slightly less fluid retention. However, the "scary" side -effects listed are very unlikely by any stretch. I'm always concerned about the "bandaid" use of cortisone, but i can't be that negative, not knowing the reason it was given to you. I would not worry! ...Read more

Im gonna start taking methylprednisolone, im scared to take it with all the side effects.?

Significant illness: The side effects of steroids are seen more commonly if the dose is high and the duration is long. Discuss the reason for steroids with your doctor. You must have a significant underlying disease requiring aggressive treatment. The end point of not taking steroids might be far more serious than the potential side effects of the medication. Try for low dose and every other day if possible. ...Read more

Not likely: If you did not have any immediate side effects from the solumedrol (methylprednisolone) (like steroid psychosis), then your chances of having serious side effects are small after just two doses. Most of the serious side effects from steroids occur after long term use. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with plantar faciitis(2.5 months). My podiatrist gave Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pak. Is this short term or long term relief? Any side effects?

Hopefully, long term: But there is no guarantee at all. In addition, there should be other treatments like an arch support, stretching an ice. I don't think as a stand alone treatment that would be successful. Sure, side effects are a possibility.......As there are with any drug.. ...Read more

Had a severe psychiatric response to a steroid shot yrs ago (have had mild ones to Cipro as well). Is a 4mg,6 day, tapering dose of Methylprednisolone be likely to cause the same? Or any of the side effects for that matter?

Had a severe psychiatric response to a steroid shot yrs ago (have had mild ones to Cipro as well). Is a 4mg,6 day, tapering dose of Methylprednisolone be likely to cause the same? Or any of the side effects for that matter?

Potentially: If you had a severe response previously to steroid, you sure would not want to try them again. There is the risk with repeat exposures to medications that each reaction could be worse than the previous one. Seek other options. ...Read more

What are the side effects of Medrol (methylprednisolone) pack? Does it work to take care of inflammation in the low back due to a herniated disk? Please help

What are the side effects of Medrol (methylprednisolone) pack? Does it work to take care of inflammation in the low back due to a herniated disk? Please help

Potentially: A Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack is basically a regimen of oral steroids, usually taken for anywhere from a 6-15 day course. Steroids are very potent anti-inflammatories and so can help inflammatory conditions such as a radiculopathy secondary to a herniated disc. The effectiveness, and also the time they last vary tremendously. Steroids can cause multiple, severe side effects but usually more in chronic use. ...Read more

Prescribed cadista azithromycin and albuterol. I'm not sure if these should all be taken together and how many pumps to take. Any bad side effects?

Prescribed cadista azithromycin and albuterol. I'm not sure if these should all be taken together and how many pumps to take. Any bad side effects?

Follow instructions: A patient should follow her doctor's instructions on taking medicine. Azithromycin (zithromax) is usually taken once a day for 5 days to treat certain types of infections. Albuterol comes in different forms, but the hand-held inhaler (metered-dose inhaler) is usually taken as 2 puffs by mouth, every 4 to 6 hours, when treating asthma-cough symptoms. Many doctors tailor drug dosing to each patient. ...Read more

Finished medrol (methylprednisolone) a day ago. On azythromycin feeling fatigue and loss of appetite. Normal side effects or either medications?

Not usually but: Medrol (methylprednisolone) tends to stimulate and increase appetite but azithromycin may upset your stomach to cause a loss in appetite. The fatigue however may be from a letdown from Medrol (methylprednisolone)'s stimulant effect. I presume that you had not been taking Medrol (methylprednisolone) for more than a week. If you had been taking Medrol (methylprednisolone) for months. contact your doctor or go to ER immediately since this may represent a transient adrenal failure. ...Read more
