  • Do you mean Medrol? I've been on it for a very short period if time to get my inflammation levels under control. No side effects and it worked well, but everyone can react differently.

  • Medrol is the Brand name for Methylpredisolone.

    It's used for a variety of things. The main thing to remember is NOT to eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice with this medication.
    Grapefruit can increase your side effects if eaten or drank.

  • According to what PMS said - yep, a few times. Is it a blister pack, take 7 the first day, 6 the 2nd, and so on? Ugh, I hate it.
