Tried drinking with Gatorade, Coke, and water. Also tried eating something after.
MethylPREDNISolone Dose Pack - Methlyprednisolone tastes like crap. Any way to solve this issue?

Just stick the pill in applesauce--you won't even know its there. I take all my pills with applesauce.
I just got prescribed a pack of it, I first just tried putting the pill in the side of mouth but I could taste the bitterness right away and then spit it out. I then took a teaspoon of yogurt and put the pill in that. I quickly put the yogurt and pill in my mouth then chased it with water. Worked just fine. A little bit of an aftertaste but not as bad as just the pill alone.
Is this the same as the MedrolPac (a six-day course tapering off until complete)? Or do you take them more often (including qty. each day)? Don't worry, I CAN look it up, but I just finished the MedrolPac and I have to admit it, quite a few times they broke in half when trying to get them out of the blister pak. I took them with my "vitaminwater" (or maybe my yummy coffee once or twice), and I must say the taste is GAWD AWFUL. A couple of times I got them stuck in my throat and melted quickly before I could cough it up. Once in particular a whole one got stuck and I couldn't get it back up by coughing. It melted there and I got one of the worst sore throats I've had in my life (kinda like a strep throat pain but with this horrible bitterness), and it stuck with me for the rest of the day. Nothing really helped the pain. I just made sure I drank a lot of my water (and coffee).
One just needs to take it with whatever they might like to drink, or a spoonful of pudding, or something like that. Taking the six-day course I just decided I had to suck it up until I was finished taking it.
