Hi — I was just prescribed methylprednisolone for my allergy flare-up — question is for a 6-day dose — should I be considered about weight gain?

Hi — I was just prescribed methylprednisolone for my allergy flare-up — question is for a 6-day dose — should I be considered about weight gain?

Nah.: Anything is possible (& it depends on your dose), but 6 days is awfully short. If you're weighing yourself every day, you may see your weight go up temporarily due to a little fluid retention but it will go right back down again after you finish. It may make you hungry but how much damage can you do in a few days? Just be careful and try to regulate your calories. ...Read more

I have developed severe environmental eye Allergies. Only Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack effective. I hv appt. With allergist soon. What is immunotherapy?

Consider auto-immune: This condition should be evaluated by an ophthalmologist as that seems fairly extreme for an environmental eye irritation. It is possible that the condition could have another cause such as auto-immune (your body attacking certain parts of the eye) which may be why the Medrol (methylprednisolone) is effective as it is an immune suppressant(immuno-therapy) and powerful anti-inflammatory. ...Read more

Got a methylprednisone shot today, but it isn't working. Woke up with severe allergies. How much benedryl can I take?

Allergies: You have to give the steroids some time to work. It isn't instantaneous. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) can be taken at a dose of 25-50 mg every 6 hours. However, newer antihistamines are less sedating such as Zyrtec and Claritan. ...Read more

Had depo-medrol steroid injection on19th for allergies.had shoulder surgery 3 weeks ago. Which painkillers are safe to take? Hydrocodone/acetaminophen?

None interact with: Injection, which is a small amount of drug in one spot and not everywhere.
Frankly, the slight risk is the meloxicam (aspirin like drugs potentially increasing the bleeding risk of the injection).
Then there are separate issues about the safety of narcotics/tylenol/etc cannot say in your particular case, but generally, safe. ...Read more

53 yr-old woman developed disabling neurological pains and paresthesias this past year after an LP, felt to be acrachnoiditis plus had nasal CSF.....?

Not knowing from: Where you're contacting Health Tap, it wouldn't be practical to give you a referral, if that is indeed what you want. Whoever performed the nasal patch may be better able to guide you to appropriate specialists. Generally, university settings have specialists whose focus is more narrow than those in community hospital systems. Best wishes! ...Read more

Why can't you have a beer with methylprednisolone?

Not at same time: I don't think that drinking one beer would be a problem as long as you don't take the medication with the beer. Both alcohol and methylprednisolone can cause inflammation of the stomach lining so that overdoing it with daily alcohol is not recommended while on that medication. ...Read more
