I started taking this drug prescribed by my orthopedic doctor for recurring R leg pain. This was after having lower back surgery 3 months ago. At 8PM I started feeling weak, fatigued and it got progressively worse. I started vomiting and could not quit. I was taken to ER by my daughter and they successfully got it under control at 3AM the next morning! I have never been so sick in my life!!

My neurologist prescribed it along with a muscle relaxer for headaches. Not only did it not help but I cant sleep without Ambien and its been 5 days off it. If you're in severe joint pain and don't have to go to work for a week it would be great as it really seems to help in that regard.

I have taken Medrol for over 10 year. I take 6 mg every three days. With the exception of having to pee all the time on the day I take it the drug works great. It is the only drug tha has helped my RA

I hurt my back lifting a person and have been in constant misery for a whole year now and even had to crawl around on my hands and knees from time to time. I have a moderately protruding disk and severe back pain that goes down into both legs and its excrutiating, i think its called spinal stenosis. ive tried all kinds of meds and this is the 1st one to touch the constant pain at all!! i feel soo much better and im just on my 2nd day!!! no side effects at all so far, just RELIEF!!! Im amazed!!!

I've had two back surgeries. Stenosis of the spine then a vertabrea slipped out of line. For two years I have been in 24 hour pain. I was given a dose pack and the 2nd day I felt 95% better. Hardly any pain. I have had no side effects and really wish it had a more healing powers so that one would not have to stay on it. It has helped me so much. The clients that complained of problems must remember that all medicine cannot be tolerated by everyone. Because it does not work on one person does not mean it will not help someone else. It is a very good medicine and that is the reason that advertisers ask you to ask your doctor is this particular medicine right for you. It is very good for me, for which I give thanks. I just wish I could continue on it or, as I said, wish it had MORE lost lasing healing effect along with the pain relief it gives so that after you've been on it for a limited time you could come off it and the problem would be healed or mostly healed.
