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.

I had neck surgery on a disc and after surgery was prescribed this med in January to reduce swelling in my neck and now I'm still having trouble swolling and they put me back on this medicine in March is this normal : had a new disc put in neck ## Did they provide you with a diagnosis? 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.

Will there be any withdrawal side effects once I have completed my prescribed dosage? ## Hello, Riya! How are you? The FDA classifies this medication as a steroid and no, there shouldn't be any, if you take it as prescribed. However, some of its side effects may still linger for a week or so, after finishing it. So you may still experience headache, insomnia, nervousness and elevated blood pressure.

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? ...

I've done the 4mg pill regiment. I did fine. But only felt about 2weeks of relief. It's been two months ago, now I'm on day two of new six day pill regimen and it's causing me bad nausea this time around. Has anyone taking the shot? If so please give details? How many shots? Any side effects? How long dose it help for? How often can you take it? Thanks in advance! ## Hello, Ronnie! How are you? I am sorry about the problems you're experiencing. The shot and pills are about the same, so your period of relief will be very similar, so will the side effects, according to the NIH. You may also experience dizziness, insomnia, heart palpitations, and headache. As to how many shots, or how often, that really depends on what your doctor feels is safe for you. Are you on any o... ...

Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well! I am a 31 year old male who just finished a 6 day methylprednisolone 4mg course yesterday for a possible pinched nerve (Had been having some tingling in my arm and chest paints). I previously had several tests done on my heart, and they all came back clear. I took all of the pills prescribed from 6 on the first day, to 1 on the last day, and only had 1 day during the trial period when I had high heart rate, heart racing, feeling of anxiety, shortness of breathe. The rest of the days, I felt decent. Today, my first day since ending the medication, I started experiencing these symptoms again (high heart rate, shortness of breathe, tight feeling in chest) . I have also started feeling my pulse more prominently in my temple area of my head, as well as ... ...

Methylprednisolone screwed up first dose.
1 Reply RSS
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. Is t... ...
