... having a problem urinating. Could this be a side effect of this drug
Medrol or methylprednisolone is a steroid antiflammatory med usually given in a dose pack. It starts with a high dose of the med, then slowly tapers down so it does not cause adrenal problems. By eight days, you should be done or almost done taking this medication. Trouble urinating is not listed as a side effect, but anything is possible. If the problem urinating doesn't clear up by the end of the day, I would call the prescribing doc and let him know what's going on. That's my best answer and advice.
