I gargle with hydrogen peroxide 3% every morn. Well I accidently swallowed some today. I'm on Depo-Provera Medrol (methylprednisolone) which I started today. Will this affect it?

In brief: No

Swallowing a small amount of hydrogen peroxide should have no ill effect.
It will not interfere with the depomedrol (methylprednisolone). My question is why do you gargle with this daily? Double check if you need to do this. Ask your doctor or your dentist.

In brief: No, it should not

Peroxide swallowed should not affect depomedrol (methylprednisolone).
It can, sometimes, take two weeks for the Depo-Provera to became effective, so use caution for the next 2 weeks, such as condoms.
