My MD prescribed this for inflammation in head, ears, nose, throat and cough along with an inhaler. I am on day 5 and although I am improving, I still have a nasty dry cough which has not improved. Maybe I am not using the inhaler properly. I do have some side effects from the methylpred 4mg but tolerable. I would like to take something for this persistant cough but am afraid to mix with meds. I am 79 yrs old in fairly decent health. Can I take any over the counter cough medicine? Thank you so much. Mary ## Hello, Mary! How are you doing? Has the cough improved, yet? It may be due to the inhaler, most of them can cause dry mouth and dry throat. However, before adding anything else, it would be best to double check with your prescribe to make sure it is safe for you to do so. The side ef... ...

I just started this med today for sciatica. I've taken 5 out of the 6 tablets for today so far. Experiencing fatigue, dizziness, severe muscle cramping in legs and hands, racing heartbeat and feeling totally out of it. I think the side effects are worse than the pain. Can I just stop taking this without more serious problems? Please help as I really don't want to take it anymore! ## If you've taken that many and your doctor wanted you to taper it, it would be best to continue to do so, unless they instruct otherwise. Everything you've described can be normal side effects of steroid medications, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience insomnia, nervousness and acne. How are you feeling, now? Has there been any change? ## My doctor told me to stop taking. Feeling b... ...

I am curious, why not methylprednisolone tab 2 or 4mg is not available in Dublin..since it is used in patients with inflammed tonsils..My Fiance is in Dublin, the doctor prescribed him calvepen which is I saw alot of complaints made by some due to its side effects...with methylprednisolone tablet the inflammation subsides in no time..second day the patient has no sore throat and feels better...And its pnly good 3days..while calvepen 10 days but yet the patient is still complaining of sorethroat, I know its antibiotics.. ## Yes, the main difference here is that while the Methylprednisolone may help with the inflammation, it is not an antibiotic and will do nothing for the underlying infection that is causing the tonsil problem.

It is highly possible for swelling, or scar tissue to cause problems long after surgery, even when it seems that the rest of the recovering is done. Is the medication helping? The FDA classifies this as a steroid that is used to treat inflammation, allergic reactions and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, weight gain and fluid retention.

I was just prescribed methylprednisolone 4mg for ringing in the ears. After reading so many negative reviews I'm afraid to take it. Is there something else I could take with fewer side effects? ## Hello, Mar! How are you? This actually is the steroid that's known to cause less side effects and problems than the others. And you also need to remember that the negative reviews are only left by a very small number of people that have actually taken it. The larger percentage take it without a problem and thus, have no reason to be hunting up a website like this to look for more information on it. I took it myself last year for a cyst and the worst effect I had was a slight blood pressure and heart rate elevation for a few days. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Methylprednisolone screwed up first dose.

I was prescribed 6 day Methylprednisolone 4mg tablets and on the very first day of taking the first dose, I screwed up and took the two tablets after breakfast. Does this mess up the treatment? Why do instructions read to take before breakfast, after lunch, etc.? And can you take all 6 at once or is it intended to be extended throughout the day? ## Hello, Mar! How are you? Taking it after breakfast will not screw anything up, some people are unable to take them on an empty stomach and have to take them with food. It just gets into your body quicker and starts to work faster on an empty stomach. They can be taken all at once, but they usually direct you to split them up to prevent severe nausea, nervousness and elevated heart rate, which are among the side effects listed by the FDA.

Terrible side effects from Methylprednisolone

I was prescribed the 4mg pack to help me with neck and shoulder pain. As soon as I finished the last pill, my blood pressure shot up to 170/100, my ears started ringing and whirring, my head started aching, and my appetite dropped. It is now 8 days since taking the meds, and I've been to the ER twice. I'm now on blood pressure meds to try and control the blood pressure problem. Has anyone else had these problems? How long can I anticipate having this before it finally subsides? I had perfect blood pressure before this mess. ## Hello, Sammie! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. Most steroids, including this one, can cause elevated heart rate and blood pressure, but they generally don't linger beyond 3 or 4 days after finishing the course ... ...

How are you? I'm sorry about the headaches. Yes, it is possible. The FDA classifies Methylprednisolone as a steroid class medication, so it can cause that, as well as nausea, dizziness, insomnia and elevated blood pressure. It may even be a combination of both having taking the medication and your sinuses. The antibiotic can also cause headaches, in some people that take it. How many more days of it do you have to take?

I just finnish take the 4mg pak methyiprednisolone tablet yesterday how long before it out my sistem? ## The length of time any drug remains in your system is going to vary from individual to individual, based on several factors, such as: -how much you take -how often you take it -your metabolic rate -your age and health -body mass -diet -etc... Methylprednisolone however, has an average half life of 18 to 36 hours. This means that it can take the body anywhere from 18 to 36 hours to clear 50% of the drug (after your last dose). You can see here that if you've been taking the drug regularly, then your dosing intervals may actually come before the long half life of the drug and therefore remain in your system longer (due to the higher dose that's now present in your system) - hyp... ...
