Anyone here have negative side effects while talking Methyprednisolone?
Usually I avoid steroids at all costs, but this time I started the six day course.

Just wondering if anyone here uses them, or has, and ended up with anything that made them wish they hadn’t.

No medical advice, just anecdotal evidence.

Thanks in advance.

I have taken it several times. Just don't take it too often and you will be ok.

I took straight prednisone for pain in June. The pain stopped within about 2 hrs after first dose. The I came down with Covid 3 weeks later. Not sure if related.

I yelled at some poor fuck who parked too close to my car and cut in line at the bank, if that counts.

I know long term usage of it will decrease your immune systems effectiveness, but my GP recommended it to get ahead of congestion.

Yes. Rx for infection inflammation over 14 days with taper.

No interest in sex. Zero.
Ate everything in sight, all the time.
Only slept a few hours a night.
Ran out of house chores due to a very high energy level. I.e. waxing cars at 2:00am - things like that.

Doc said - ehhh, we probably won’t use that for you again.

I never could take regular predisone as it made my legs and ankles swell up.

Love Methylprednisolone.
No side effects except for a ravenous appetite.

This was my experience as well. 30 days with taper for an eye condition. I was up til 2-3 am washing the floors, cleaning windows. Sex drive took a nose dive. Also got the chipmunk cheek look in my face.

Do you eat pasteurized dairy? Stop eating it for 3 months. Raw dairy only or no dairy at all.

Ignore this and take the steroids.

It depresses the immune system so probably there's a correlation.

Re: Anyone here have negative side effects while talking Methyprednisolone?
I took a different steroid (hydrocortisone) and WORST decision of my life. It completely RUINED my health and my body.

Do I qualify as you want anecdotes or no? I had the most bizarre symptoms (and still do) EVER!!!
