That can be a side effect of most steroids, you may also experience dry skin, redness, irritation and weight gain, as reported by the FDA. Typically, such side effects are transient and will start to go away in a few weeks, once you finish your course of treatment with the steroid. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Is robaxin a steroid?
2 Replies RSS
Is methocarbamol (robaxin) a steroid or anti-depressant? I started using it two months ago in Apr 2013 and I am experiencing severe mood swings. The two things that cause me mood swings is IM, IV, or oral steroids or any type of anti-depressant. I'm becoming reclusive, angry and noncommunicative. This happens every time I'm exposed to either drug category. I know depressants can also cause these side effects, but I've had lots of those without side effects whereas I've never taken one of the aforementioned without them. Thx! ## No, Robaxin/Methocarbamol is just a muscle relaxant, but mood changes are warned about in the monograph as being a potential serious side effect. Thus, you should most likely stop taking it and contact your doctor as soon as possible. It seems it ... ...

trenbuterol steroid

I recently started tren. I have worked out little due to being busy the past few days but I'm super sore. Any thoughts? ## I'm just curious, is Trenbuterol the correct name or spelling? All my searches yield results for Trenbolone and/or Clenbuterol, but not the one you mentioned here... Ironically, the prefix and suffix of Trenbuterol sounds like a combination of those two names I stumbled upon. Any clarification on that would be much appreciated. Also, have you had any noticeable results or changes in physical performance since the timing of your original post? ...

Steroid Induced Psychosis... Would like to raise awareness
4 Replies RSS
Hello all, I am here to share my story and help raise awareness of some of the side effects that can occur, even on lower doses of Prednisone. Physicians are to quick to hand out these powerful drugs and in most cases leave their patients in the dark, regarding what can occur, both mentally and physically. I have made it my mission in life to spread the word. Here is my story. I suffer from Inflammatory Bowel Disease and my GI wanted me to try taking a lower dose of Prednisone, 10mg daily, until we could get the mild flare I had been having under control. I had never had steroids before and did not question him. It was his intention to have me take them long term to see if it could keep my disease in remission since no other medication had worked. I am thankful, however, that he started... ...

Can steroids cause Fentanyl medication to wear off faster?
3 Replies RSS
I've been using 100mcg patch Fentanyl every 48 hours for months now. Last week my neurologist had to prescribe me a Medrol-Dos Pak (steroids) because the pain in my knee became unbearable, even with pain medication. It was too early to get another shot. So, I'm now on DAY 3 of the DOSE PAK, and I swear these patches start wearing off after only 1 day! Out of the blue I started feeling horrible withdrawal symptoms yesterday, even though I wasn't due to change the patch until today. I had no choice but to replace the patch early. I figured maybe it was a defective patch. But now TODAY I am experiencing the same problem. If these are not defective patches, then the only factor possible is the steroid medication having an effect on the medication/or my body's tolerance level... ...

Allergy type symptoms with Butrans
1 Reply RSS
I started Butrans 10 on 4/30. Had amazing relief. I felt better than I had in years. I caught a cold around April 20th. Went straight to my chest. My Dr thought I had walking pneumonia and started me on a course of steroids and antibiotics. 10 days later, no improvement, chest xray clear but wheezing and heavy with breathing. Dr. gave another round of steroids and antibiotics. This past weekend, I started to feel like a brand new cold came on me. Severe head congestion, terrible cough, the works. I went to urgent care. That Dr. told me it was allergy related. He gave a decadron shot, Z pak, started me on Zyrtec, albuterol inhaler. Today is the first day I have started to feel a little better. My question is this, could this possibly be from the patch? I seems a little coincidental that ... ...

I just started a new job at a call center, we are very busy right now and i suffer from anxiety and panic disorder. I just started my methylprednisone pack and after reading the side effects im afraid the nervousness will affect me at work. I take prozac, clonazepam, triavil and trazadone. Should i be taking this steroid? ## Hello, Candie! How are you? Yes, it can cause anxiety as a side effect in some people, as reported by the FDA, along with the nervousness, insomnia, acne and irritability. However, it shouldn't completely negate your other medications, so they should still help. It may, however, slightly reduce the effect of the Triavil and Trazodone. Have you consulted your doctor? They may want you to temporarily increase your Clonazepam, while on this steroid. ...

can I take methylprednisolione if i took diclofenac? can I start my methylprednisolone pack on day 3 ## Hello, Denver! How are you? No, these two generally shouldn't be taken together, due to the increased risk of GI ulceration, from them increasing the toxicity of each other. It would be best to speak to your doctor regarding what you can safely take with the Methylprednisolone. As to it, the FDA classifies it as a steroid and, for it to be most effective, you should take the full dose pack, as prescribed, with no shortcuts. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, fluid retention, acne and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Stopped taking it and 48 hours later no hives, itching or sinus symptoms. Still dealing with fatigue. It did helps constipation problem although I came real close to more than one accident.

The surgery would be extensive. 8 hour surgery with intensive rehab. I'm tiered of trying to get the steroid shots because they can not do them as frequently as I need.

My doctor just started me on a round of steroids. She said not to take my naproxin with it. Forgot to ask if I can take my flexerol with it. Can I do that ? ## Hello, Carol! How are you? Yes, that should be fine, as long as your doctor approves. The reason she told you to skip the Naproxen is because it and Prednisone both increased the toxicity of each other, which could result in overdose issues.
