I am finishing a long course of methylprednisolone. I have been avoiding alcohol during the course. How long do I need to wait before I can have drink?

I am finishing a long course of methylprednisolone. I have been avoiding alcohol during the course. How long do I need to wait before I can have drink?

That depends on what: You were taking the steroid for. I always wonder when someone is asking a total stranger on an online website rather than the doctor who is treating them about when they can drink again.

Is it possible to consume alcohol when you are prescribed a steroid, ic methylprednisolone for a skin rash? What are the side affects of consuming alcohol while you are on this steroid? What would happen if you do consume alcohol while on this steroid?

Nothing: I always wonder what someone means when they say 'consuming alcohol.' if we are talking one or two social drinks a few times a week, then the answer is nothing. If we are talking about getting drunk every day, every other day, then it is not good for you or your skin. There are no specific interactions between beverage alcohol and steroids used on the skin. ...Read more

No worries: If a person is supposed to take 2 pills 3 times a day, and instead takes 3 pills, then 1 pill, then 2 pills, that should be ok. Taking 3, then 2, then 1, should be ok also. Her total dose for that day would still equal 6 pills. ...Read more
