For Inflammatory Conditions: "I was in a car accident. After taking Tramadol, Flexeril, & Naproxen everyday while going to chiropractor for 7 weeks I still had pain in upper & lower back, right shoulder blade, right arm & wrist everyday. Had 3 MRIs on week 9 which revealed 5 bulging/herniated discs with pinched nerves in neck & 2 in lower back. Was prescribed Medrol Dose Pack 4 mg (21 pills x 6 days) & had 70% pain relief afterwards. Side effects from Medrol Dose Pack I had were nausea, slight headaches, and trouble breathing (I never took the meds on an empty stomach & have no health problems, 31 yrs old). 4 days after completing dose pack a majority of pain reappeared again everyday. Now have been prescribed aquatic therapy and IDD (cervical/lumbar mechanical traction"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "Was prescribed this for a rash/skin irritation. I didn't see results until 3-4 days into the 6 day pack. Side effects for me were bad heartburn (usually at night when I went to lay down) and gas/bloating. Overall it wasn't anything too miserable. I'm only day 5 now and rash seems to be completely gone."

For Gout, Acute: "My primary care doctor prescribed indomethacin and I couldn't tolerate it because, among other things, it made me itch badly and my ears rang a lot. I told my podiatrist and he suggested methprednisolone because I only have to take it for 6 days per episode and likely, it would not make me itch or cause ear ringing. Well, he was RIGHT. The morning after my FIRST DOSE, I felt relief. The pain had substantially decreased and I was walking normally again. After 2 days, the pain was GONE. I still finished the dose as instructed though. I didn't have another episode for 6 months and after my first dose during the 2nd, my pain was gone. This is a great drug and not having to take it every day when I take so many other meds is a God-send."

For Gout, Acute: "I experience gout in my big toe (right usually I believe). I had a flare at night while on vacation (for hiking, walking) and walked quite bit the following day (with a good deal of pain). Three days later it was as bad as it's ever been. Red, hot, swollen and inflamed. I was in Maui with my wife. What caused it was 2 meals with healthy servings of Ahi, a 10 hour plane ride with little water and alcohol - wine, a beer, martinis. I overflowed the purine bucket. I called my Dr. Daughter and she wrote me a script. I took the entire first row as soon as I got it (per her directions). Within 2-3 hours, the gnawing pain subsided, I was able to sleep all night and walk (hobble) in the AM. I'm 75% better after 24 hours, but can't go on walk."

Depo-Medrol (methylprednisolone) for Inflammatory Conditions: "My primary doc actually gave me a shot of this when I threw my back out. I never felt better. I went back to him and told him not only did it help with my back, but with may fibromyalgia! My rheumatologist had given me all sorts of pills to try and I felt like like a science experiment! I usually get it 1-2 times a year. I stretch it out until I know I can't take it anymore and my body tells me- "help"- it has done me wonders! I can get back on my feet and be me within a day or 2 depending on how bad I am. No more docs pushing pills down my throat or telling me it's all in my head, & I can get outta bed when the alarm goes off- not hitting snooze and for 2 hours and Practically in tears! I know my body N it works for me! Good luck!"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I am currently on this medicine for an inflamed sinus cavity, with 2 more days left. I have been experiencing HORRIBLE backaches to the point of wearing a heating pad on my back the past 3 days, the stomach cramps, constipation, fatigue, extreme thirst, UTI like symptoms and insomnia I've been experiencing!! I didn't know would happen, my pharmacist didn't really mention all of these side effects to me when I got this pill. Anyways though, I have NOT been able to breathe out of the one nostril and the other was barely open too which makes for a very difficult night of sleep however, this pill has done wonders! Within the second day I was able to breathe and lay on my one side which is something I haven't been able to do in a long time!"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I had foot pain on right side, my right hip also but not considered at time. I took methylprednisolone 4mg pack. By the end of the medicine, I was not having any pain in foot or hip. Wow what a difference. It made moving around and going to work was much better than a few days before. Eating with medicines helps the upset stomach. What a life change! Thanks!"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I have had a bad back since 21, I am 35 years old now, I have suffered in pain at all times but the occasional flare up of throwing my back out went from once a year to everyday. But then I fell flat in my butt hard a few months ago and one of the slipped discs decided to push up against my nerve and I was in complete bed rest. I could barely make it to the toilet and to sit on the toilet was hell not to mention the wonderful job of wiping! Finally went to a back doctor she gave me this. So far a miracle, I am only on day 3 but so far the pain went from a unbearable 10 to a bearable 5. I have some side effects happening, insomnia, Diarrhea, but I could not sleep anyway with the pain and I need to move around! Good luck to you all"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I just completed a 5 day pack of Methylprednisone 4mg and my neck pain gradually went away but I am paying the price because I have had upset stomach, diarrhea, etc. since the third day of the five day program. However the pain is almost gone. I hope my stomach restores itself soon because I don't remember feeling so bad. It's like a 5 day hangover."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I got prescribed a Medrol pack after my orthopedic dr confirmed my severe leg and left buttock pain was due to a L4 L5 large herniation (10mm to be exact). At first I was very hesitant to start up on these based off of all the bad scary reviews but one night I had enough of the pain and decided to start up the next morning. My only regret is that I didn't start this medication sooner! By the end of the 1st night, my pain went from an agonizing 9 down to a manageable 3-4. By the time I had finished, my pain is down to a 1-2 and my toes are getting the feeling back in them. The only side effects I did get was upset stomach, painful bloating and gas, and insomnia for a couple nights. I've only been off the medication for 3 days and feel great!"

For Gout, Acute: "Best thing ever invented. I had gout nine months ago and let it run the course for about two weeks. Almost killed me. I did All home remedies and everything you found on the net. This time I awoke and could not walk. I knew what was wrong. I hopped to the doctors office and he agreed and gave me the prescription for methylpredinsoline two hours after taking the pills I started feeling better. The next day no pain and I could walk. BEST MEDICINE EVER. THANK YOU WHOEVER FOUND THIS."

For Gout, Acute: "All these really good reviews are depressing me. I had my first ever gout attack 7 days ago and have been in mind blowing pain the entire time. My doc prescribed methyl prednisone 3 days ago, but I have so far seen absolutely no improvement, in fact, my symptoms might be worse. I have another 3 days of the pills to take, but so far it's not been effective for me. I hope that changes soon!"
