How often can you take the 6 day pac? I have obtained fairly good relief with the 4mg methylprednisolone 6 day pac. I have been in horrible pain. My nurse practitioner refilled once but will not refill again. Awaiting my appointments with ortho and rheumatologist but don't know how I am going to make it? I am hurting so badly.
Boomergem2; Really It's more on the rare side that a doctor will give more than one of those to a patient on a rare occasion they will fill it twice. It is such a high dose steroid that they can cause problems for any patient if the first couple has not taken care of it. Depends on how far away from your appt. with the other doctor is and how long ago you got those 2 packs If you have to wait a while the prescriber may give you one to get you in but it's really a tough call. They really are looking out for you. And I really can't think of anything else they could try. You could give the office a call and tell them the problem you're having and see if you can get something that could help you get into the other doctor.
