... recommend that she take iv treatments for 3 days of the solu m. Do you know what the risks are? Thank you, Jo-Ann
Solu-Medrol (methylprednisolone) has not been formally assigned to a pregnancy category by the FDA as there have been no studies done on human pregnancies.
Solu-Medrol is only recommended for use during pregnancy when there are no alternatives and the benefits outweigh the risks.
The only information I could find on the risks -
"... Infants born of mothers who have received substantial doses of corticosteroids during pregnancy should be carefully observed for signs of hypoadrenalism... "
Your daughter is in the second trimester (which is much safer than the first) and a three day course of Solu-Medrol (which is a corticosteroid) wouldn't be considered substantial, so hopefully the "benefits" side of the scale is tipping her way.
