methylpred 4mg

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... ...

Over 60: can I take Levofloxacin 500 MG Tab safely with prescribed (together) Methylpred 4 MG pak ? Chronic sinus sufferer... Just started. ## Hello, Florida! How are you? Actually no, it is not recommended that these be taken together, by anyone, regardless of age and being elderly can worsen the issues that may occur. They both tend to increase the amounts of the other that you absorb and, in the case of Levofloxacin, the FDA reports that it can significantly increase the risk of a tendon rupture. The other typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne, insomnia and diarrhea. It may be best to double check with your doctor as they may want to prescribe something different. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No thanks...I've almost ... ...

methylprednisolone 4 mg

I just finished using this for itchy skin at 35+ wks pregnant, i now have a yeast infection am i okay to take a over the counter med for it or one the dr prescribed? ## Hi mandy, Since you are pregnant, I believe you would need to ask your doctor about every medication you are thinking about taking wether it's prescription or OTC. What is the name of the OTC medication you're considering and what are the active ingredients? I'm not sure if you're allowed to take probiotics, but doing so may be able to prevent yeast infections in the future by reinstating good bacteria in your body. Also, apple cider vinegar is a popular alternative for treating yeast infections without medications. Based on my research, Braggs apple cider vinegar is safe for use during and after pregnanc... ...

Methylprednisone 4mg tbpk

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.

Has there been any change? ## My doctor told me to stop taking. Feeling b... ...

Pain on Methylprednisolone

This is my second day on this drug and it was wonderful the next day after taking it. Took it for awful pain just below my neck and pain in lower back. Horrible for RA. Second day pain came back in lower back. Hurts, so is it not working now and is this unusual? ## Hello, Jo! How are you? Methylprednisolone is not an analgesic. It is classified by the FDA as a steroid, so while it may relieve pain a little, because it can help relieve inflammation, it will not alleviate all of it and it can cause some serous side effects. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, fluid retention, elevated heart rate, elevated blood pressure and weight gain. Was this medication prescribed by your doctor? ## Yes it was prescribed by Dr. And after presidone dident wor well he put me on ... ...

methylprednisolone effects.

I was put on the 6 day methylprednisolone pack because of a back injury. I just took my first two tablets this morning. After I took them, I read its bad to take with high blood pressure. I have high blood pressure and take lisinopril for this but it doesn't always control it. Would I be okay just not to take any more of the pills? I only took the two, that's all. I would rather not take this medication after hearing all the side effects. ## Hello, Amy! How are you? How high is your blood pressure? There are cases where it may still be appropriate to take this medication, generally the doctor needs to evaluate whether or not the benefits outweigh the possible risks. The FDA lists its other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, acne and edema. Ho... ...

However having only taken the medication for 1-6 days, I almost wonder if you'd even experience withdrawals at all...? None the less, if you are concerned I would definitely encourage you to talk with your doctor about setting up a tapering schedule to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
