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.

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?

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? ...
