Hello, ETAZ01! 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?

Other antibiotic side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

thank you so so so much for your reply, I took the methyprednisolone medication for 6 days and the cephalexin for 7 days. So Ive been OFF the medication now for 7 days. I'm confused since i'm off the medication I still have the headaches?? I have the headache today but its not as intense as yesterday.

It could take a couple weeks, for all such side effects to wear off.

However, if you don't have any improvement soon, then please consult your doctor.

Has it continued easing up?

I went back to the Doctor, looks like I have tension headaches. Could have been a mixture sinus, medicine and a bad cold causing my headaches, I still have them and everyday it's getting a bit better. I think a spa massage is in order for me :/)Thank you for checking in.

Re: Kyra (# 6)

Same here I only have one day left but have been getting horrible headaches since I started taking it. I have trying to just tough it out until I'm done but everything I have taken to help with headache is not helping. I even tried taking my pain med for my bk and it didn't help at all. Any ideas...?
