For Inflammatory Conditions: "I've had intermittent hip pain for many years, it really picked about three weeks ago with, at times, intolerable pain. Even with a pain pill I had difficulty sleeping sitting, always favoring my right hip to avoid the pain. After taking the Medrol dose pack, for two days the pain began to subside, The pain is now gone and dare I say I feel great! Hope it lasts!!!"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "Last month I was given this med by the orthopedic for a "pinched nerve" from my neck to shoulder down arm which was very painful. I took a double dose pak, 42 pills total. I had never took steroids before. Day 2, I immediately felt better. Great! By day 12, the last day of this regimen, I was sooo tired, bloated from lots of gas, but pain was 90 percent better. The days following, I got so weak and just wanted to sleep all the time. Good thing I am retired. It's been 3 weeks since I stopped. The pain is back full force, my legs are swollen from water retention, and I'm full of gas. Pills were good for a short time, but now I am back to square one. Had 2 MRI's yesterday, and will see the doctor in 4 days. Won't take these again."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "After reading the reviews on this site, I was reluctant to follow through with my doctors orders and take this medicine. I was very concerned about the side effects people were having, because I don't like taking medications to begin with. The first day I paid very close attention to any side effects and didn't have any. I'm on my third day and I feel much better. My apatite hasn't increased, I haven't gained any weight, as a matter of fact, I've lost two pounds. It hasn't effected my sleep, no headaches or anything I can report. I'm feeling better, my allergies have cleared up, which I have been struggling with for years, so for me this has been a positive experience so far."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I've had issues with my immune system for 6 years. Each episode would start with little congestion, then mouth sores, attack hip & shoulder, extreme tiredness, vision problems and migraine. Episodes last 2 wks to 2 mos. Each one bringin me lower than the one before. Have been to dr and had many tests. Nothing definitive. Have appt to see a rheumatologist next month but the migraine with blurred vision and neck pain and shoulder pain had gone on for 11 days straight. Pain all over my head waking me at night. I was scared. So I called my dr after researh on Internet and asked for this medication. I started it at 3pm. By night the headache was all but gone. Not good sleep but better than misery pain. Fuzzy head blurred vision 2nd day. Still 90% bter"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I had been experiencing shoulder pain from repetitive strain for about 3 years; it started off quite mild and then in the past 3-6 months had developed into a constant stabbing, throbbing pain. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with rotator cuff tendonitis, and was put on methylprednisolone and valium. After the very first day on the steroid, my pain symptoms reduced *dramatically*. On day 3, it barely hurts at all. So, so, so relieved.. I wish I'd gone to the doctor much sooner!"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "31 days post-op from fusion in my neck & Microdiscectomy in my lower back. Overall, surgeries were a great success and 85% of all pre-surgical symptoms are gone. Still having pretty bad leg, hip, and pain around sciatic region as they were present five years and will of course take time to subside. I was recently put on my second 7 day 4mg methylprednisolone pack and first 24 hours have been hell. Level 10 pain in my leg where they made room for nerve and removed bone and sore hips. These pills suck in the first few days. Having taken them before, I know they work wonders, but appetite through the roof, paranoid as I have ever been, can't sleep, and pain."

Medrol Dosepak (methylprednisolone) for Inflammatory Conditions: "I use a Medrol Dosepak when my Ankylosing Spondylitis (spinal arthritis-not rheumatoid or osteoarthritis) is in a bad flare with painful, swollen joints. The side effect I always get for a couple of days is severe hip and lower back bone pain. But once that goes away the drug works wonders! That's why many of us call it "the drug with a double edged sword" It works amazingly but can have side effects for some people. I give it a high rating because it gives me back a much higher quality of life."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I had contact dermatitis and was prescribed 3 weeks on medrol 16 mg. Every week the dose was lowered. The first week I had to take one pill per day, the second week half pill a day and the last week a quarter of pill a day. The side effects were horrible for me. I dealt with constipation and the eczema is not gone completely! I think doctors should inform the patients about this tremendous side effects. It is not worth it."

For Asthma, acute: "Having severe asthma is terrible but this medication is the only thing that helps stop an attack almost instantly. I get it through IV and it feels like there's a release in my lungs. About thirty minutes after the tightness subsides and I begin to feel air reach the lower lobes of the lungs."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I just had 21 teeth pulled and immediate dentures (top and bottom) put in 48 hours ago. The pain and swelling is intense but it is reducing my swollen face quite well. I also had chronic knee pain prior to this and now my knees don%u2019t hurt. That, %u201Cwanting to snap%u201D feeling when I walk is no longer there. As far as side affects, if there was anything it is dry mouth. I drink tons of water. I%u2019d like some weight gain, ha ha. I can%u2019t eat like I used to. Thumbs up to this med if your given it for dental work."

For Immunosuppression: "Currently taking 16mg of Medrol once a day as part of undergoing IVF, although I've taken it in the past at smaller doses to help with my chronic, moderately-severe asthma, which worsens in winter. While I love prednisone for what it does in helping me breathe (and hopefully in successfully helping me achieve motherhood), I hate its side effects. For me, the biggest problem is the anxiety (though weight gain isn't fun). I already have an underlying anxiety disorder, but taking this, especially in higher doses makes me feel truly "crazy." Panic at unbearable levels, insomnia, sweaty, clammy hands and feet, racing heart, irrational/inconsolable....the whole nine yards. I use it strictly as a last (or only) resort and not without caution."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "Had a horrible cough. Choking so bad I actually hurt my neck. I was sure it was bronchitis. Dr said no. Perscribed me this. First 2 days were fine. Then horrible stomach pains, no appetite, red rash on my face would come & go, I'm so extremely tired that no amount of sleep helps, leg cramps, I'm so sore all over I feel like I have been beaten, jaw pain. List can go on. Shortness of breath almost like a anxiety attack. I still have the cough.. I'll never take this drug again. I feel horrible."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "Got the 4mg 6 day pack for neck surgery recovery. By day two, swelling went dramatically down. What I didn't expect was that the pain from my medial collateral ligament Grade 2 year from 3 weeks prior would also get relief. My knee feels fantastic. No knee stiffness from sitting. Pain decreased 80% when Pressing in medial collateral ligament tear area. Feel I got a two for one relief with this drug."

For Dermatologic Lesion: "I took a dosepack and it did not cure my sumac. I was prescibed another dosepack. It cleared my sumac symptoms. I got Diebetis and dry mouth and I am still suffering 2 months later . I will not take this drug again . I think the medical INDUSTRY is not sane. Check the commercials on TV you have your answer"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I'm a 47 year old dog groomer. I was prescribed 4mg /6 day pack for a deep root nerve inflammation in my neck due to an injury from a dog. I weigh 112 lbs. After 2 days of using this med, I went from 112 lbs to 119 lbs. I was in such a fog ; almost loopy. My legs and joints hurt severely. I have been retaining water mostly in my legs. I read up on side affects. I stopped using this med and began drinking lots and lots of water to help with the water retention. It did help with my pain very quickly, but one needs to weigh the pros and cons. I'm now wondering how long it will take to lose the near ten pounds it put on me. I'm a very healthy eater. No fast food, soda or carbs. Caloric intake is still the same. Time will tell."
