I 'm told not to take calcium and wonder if I could take this drug. My body is very bent over and it's affecting my digestion. I'll not be able to get off of Medrol and have numerous chemical sensitivities. Is there any hope. I've had my hip repaired and have had spinal fractures. I only weigh 90 lbs and I'm' 71 years old. I'm on Medrol for pulmonary issues. I've also been on thyroid medication for 24 years. My parathyroid was high but within limits. I'm confused and frightened, as I often have bad reactions to drugs, in general.
