I am allergic to NSAIDS so when I have a severe pain, the only option is medrol dosepak. The last time I took it was for back pain 6 months ago. Now I have pain from my sciatic nerve for the past 3 weeks. Tried Flexeril and Tylenol all weekend and it didnt help much. Finally the Dr agree to the medrol dosepak. Why are Drs so reluctant to prescribe this at first?
Because cortisone can do some nasty things in your body if you use it too much. Tylenol is a ridicules pain med to try for sciatic pain. If this is a chronic problem you should see a pain dr.
