"I have had a gout attacks about 6-7 times in my life. I used this prescription for the 2nd time, this was the worst attack I ever had, ( in wrist ,hand ,fingers and up to forearm) spent 20 hours before I got to Dr,(occurred on Sunday) went to Dr on Monday . This prescription started working immediately from first dose. Great for me for gout."

"I have been taking these dose packs when I have a serious gout attack. Usually in 2 days my painful gout is gone. What else could you ask for. Quality of life is back. Prior to this, nothing seem to work. Painkillers are usually addicting and really can't cure the pain. I thought my quality of lie was taking a turn for the worst with gout. However, once I discovered the drug I was so happy, Now if they could only find much better prevention Meds for gout. The Colchicine .6mg ? Allopurinol 100mg ? Just don't seem to prevent."

MethylPREDNISolone Dose Pack (methylprednisolone): "My first experience with gout. Woke up with left foot pain, thought I got a spider bite while I slept. Quickly worsened where walking was very difficult. Called a foot and ankle specialist who got me in that day. He identified condition as gout prescribed MethylPREDNISolone Tablets 4mg dose pack. Instructed to take initial dose at once with my dinner meal. The pain, swelling, discomfort subsided quickly and by next morning little discomfort remained. Completed the course of medication over the six days but condition was resolved in two days. This medication worked very well for me."

"I've taken this for sciatica in the past and it's been worthless for that. So getting this for gout the first time I wasn't expecting much but hoping to be proven wrong after reading the reviews here. Not at all. My pain is just as bad as before. I should just let my gout runs its course instead, it would feel the same and be cheaper too. This crap is awful and a waste of money. Next time my doctor wants to prescribe me this I will say "no thanks""

"First gout attack in 8 years. I take a low dose daily of allopurinol. Managed to allow myself to get dehydrated (too much coffee, allergy medication) and also was not exactly watching what I was eating and drinking. Woke up with that familiar big toe pain, by evening I couldn't walk, and the pain was so bad even after taking two aleve and a Percocet I was up most of the night in excruciating pain. Called my family doc in the morning and he called this methelpredsolone in to my pharmacy. My prescription plan picked it up and it cost me $5! Took the 1st day course as directed. Woke up this morning with only slight discomfort! I have never had a gout attack that calmed down this quickly. Usually did the indocin thing which took much longer!"

"In the hospital for 2 days with excrutiating pan in my breast bone and lower back with no diagnosis then I saw my podiatrist for a scheduled appointment and he said you have gout... Prescribed Methyipredmilsolone and the pain was gone in the first day. Maybe the diagnosticians at Eisenhower Medical in Rancho Mirage should visit Dr Andew Rothstein in Indio for some insight... At Eisenhower a nuclear stress test of my heart was ordered which I refused (my heart is fine) and I saved Medicare $10,000."

"This drug completely alleviates pain and swelling associated with my acute gout, but I am experiencing side effects of anxiety, restlessness, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, insomnia, mood swings, depression and paranoid thoughts. I'm looking forward to phasing this out, but thankful for the gout relief!"

"My primary care doctor prescribed indomethacin and I couldn't tolerate it because, among other things, it made me itch badly and my ears rang a lot. I told my podiatrist and he suggested methprednisolone because I only have to take it for 6 days per episode and likely, it would not make me itch or cause ear ringing. Well, he was RIGHT. The morning after my FIRST DOSE, I felt relief. The pain had substantially decreased and I was walking normally again. After 2 days, the pain was GONE. I still finished the dose as instructed though. I didn't have another episode for 6 months and after my first dose during the 2nd, my pain was gone. This is a great drug and not having to take it every day when I take so many other meds is a God-send."

"I experience gout in my big toe (right usually I believe). I had a flare at night while on vacation (for hiking, walking) and walked quite bit the following day (with a good deal of pain). Three days later it was as bad as it's ever been. Red, hot, swollen and inflamed. I was in Maui with my wife. What caused it was 2 meals with healthy servings of Ahi, a 10 hour plane ride with little water and alcohol - wine, a beer, martinis. I overflowed the purine bucket. I called my Dr. Daughter and she wrote me a script. I took the entire first row as soon as I got it (per her directions). Within 2-3 hours, the gnawing pain subsided, I was able to sleep all night and walk (hobble) in the AM. I'm 75% better after 24 hours, but can't go on walk."

"Best thing ever invented. I had gout nine months ago and let it run the course for about two weeks. Almost killed me. I did All home remedies and everything you found on the net. This time I awoke and could not walk. I knew what was wrong. I hopped to the doctors office and he agreed and gave me the prescription for methylpredinsoline two hours after taking the pills I started feeling better. The next day no pain and I could walk. BEST MEDICINE EVER. THANK YOU WHOEVER FOUND THIS."

"All these really good reviews are depressing me. I had my first ever gout attack 7 days ago and have been in mind blowing pain the entire time. My doc prescribed methyl prednisone 3 days ago, but I have so far seen absolutely no improvement, in fact, my symptoms might be worse. I have another 3 days of the pills to take, but so far it's not been effective for me. I hope that changes soon!"

"After days of natural remedies (tons of cherries, celery, celery root extract, whatever else I could Google) I took this medication and the extreme pain in my toe was gone overnight. I still feel some pain, but had a good nights sleep and was able to walk a short distance without screaming in pain the next morning. Ignore the natural remedies from people who have never had gout. Their uninitiated minds think gout causes pain. No. Gout is days of slow, gnawing, unrelenting torture from an invisible, blunt toothed enemy, whose torment is so bad, cutting ones foot off seems like a viable option. This medication drives it far away."

"I had one week of help me please trying to use my medications on gout. Gout in the toe in my ankle and then my left wrist. The last place was the wrist and the pain was so bad I started to go to the emergency room but held out for a dr. Visit so much cheaper. My dr. Prescribed me methylprednisone. By the next day the wrist was down to almost normal size and pain was almost gone. I gave it a 10. Its great medicine."

MethylPREDNISolone Dose Pack (methylprednisolone): "Works quickly to relieve pain. Rarely need full dosage to completely relieve pain. Have tried shots, indomethacin, Celebrex, Etodolac(severe reaction). This works best, have used for over 10 years now. Use only upon attack."

"I had my ankle swell up from gout and couldn't sleep a wink or walk the next morning because of severe pain. Took the pills as directed and 24 hours later was out using the snow blower for 3 hours with no pain. I was just diagnosed with gout, which is a bummer, but now that I know, I can take this medicine and cut gout attacks that sometimes lasted weeks where I would have to use crutches down to hours."

"I started the medicine a couple of hours before taking the indomethacin. I got immediate relief from pain. Today is my third day on the program. The joint of big toe is still red, but I continue to be pain free. I think sleep apnea, aggravated by rhinitis (hay fever) and not drinking enough water could be responsible for the flare up. The last attack happened about the same time last year (during hay fever season.)"

MethylPREDNISolone Dose Pack (methylprednisolone): "I usually wait to take this drug in the hope that the gout pain will pass. I ALWAYS regret not taking it right away. You feel relief in a couple of hours and I have never had a side effect or stomach upset. For me it works great. Sometimes though the day after I take the last pill my toe knuckle swells up again. I wait again to restart the dose. "

Solu-Medrol (methylprednisolone): "Sometimes takes several hours to work after being administered but usually relief is dramatic. Best medication I have had to relieve the pain and swelling after an acute attack of gout without having a Cortizone injection in the joint. The injection in the joint is very painful but works quicker, but i.v treatment is the best route."
