Worst part was getting a vein to cooperate. Minimal side effects, worst was the taste. It did treat my symptoms but still have some? Would take again if I absolutely had to.

Received 60 mg dose daily while admitted to hospital. Had onset of excruciating migraine after first dose and this has lasted several days. Headache was much worse than the symptoms needing the drug

I was diagnosed with a sinus infection. I also have MS. The infection caused my optical nerve to swell which is causing blurred vision and pain. I was given iv drips of solu medrol for 5 days and have seen little to no change in my progress.

My husband was given solu medrol injections because he has COPD and cannot breathe. This drug caused him to be combative, unreasonable, argumentative, someetimes staring into space and cannot hear what is being said to him. Recently, I asked the doctor to take him off prednizone which has some horrible side effects and the dr. put him on this solu medrol which is worse thn anything I have ever witnessed. I feel as if I should report the doctor due to giving my husband bad and dangerous drugs.
