Common Questions and Answers about How long does solu medrol stay in your system


739070 tn?1338607002 Feeling cr@ppy and symptoms are not significantly better 5 days after a 3 day treatment of IV <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> fact some symptoms are worse , i.e. rib and right leg bone pain; falling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> bathroom; complete and sudden urinary incontinence which is now back to urinary hesitancy and urine retention. I don't recall how long it takes to see significant results and I searched some on here before posting.
559187 tn?1330786456 The first thing I thought about when he brought <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> this big box is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> you must have felt when they delivered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> Copoxone (sp?). Such a big box and what for? The meds are in the fridge, but looks like they sent all the supplies needed for the nurse as well, and a binder of info that I don't even care to look at right now. I would like to think this is going to be straight forward like you said, but self administering is probably a really cheap way to take care of this.
Avatar n tn He wanted to start a round of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> for 5 days,it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> help <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> run,but I just came off of them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> June plus a 40 day taper off.He wants to treat the ON,but it has been getting better on its own. I had an appointment with my past neuro,but 3 days before hand, he was missing in action so I have waited the ON out.I could of went to the ER,but I don't like to do that unless its absolutly an emergency.
739070 tn?1338607002 etc, front of ear,etc.) that flare <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> TN are tender. I was wondering if the IV <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> 3+ weeks ago kept the occipital neuralgia from becoming full blow. Anyway, I was at my PCP for another issue and he okayed the 3 day Decadron burst, which after day one is making a difference. I can lay my head on the pillow without wincing. Sorry to hear yours occurs so frequently. Mine usually acts like yours with short bursts of breath-taking pain that freezes any movement until it passes.
147426 tn?1317269232 I have been dealing with bone heads for about 20 years. I have been told it is all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> mind to it is only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> diabetes acting up. And so here I go again. I swear the doctors off then when all this stuff comes back with vengeance I go again. I have seen 3 neuros since 2007. the first said I do have MS because of the MRI and the neuro testing but the second said I don't so the first took the MS away he said it was because my LP was negative. I have been sent back to another neuro.
572651 tn?1333939396 Finished <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> last week, still on taper. Who knows what <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it? No idea here. Extreme heat, exhaustion as usual, plus the summer with my kids ( and new puppy) home. I feel like I have been in a very slow and continuing to change for a long time. On Tysabri on and off for 1. 5 years. I am off now, done. Too many respitory issues for me. I told Neuro so. Was on coax one 1st. She has recommended cellcept again, or steroids every other month until the new med, bg12 comes out.
Avatar n tn in my history, when I am suffering from the pain of the Raeder's Syndrome and I have to go for out-patient <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> treatment, I would do anything to have a bed to be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> where someone else would look after me and I would have nothing to worry about. however, it won't happen here in my province unless there is something life threatening happening due to the fact that there are NO beds.
246236 tn?1275482502 just how the heck do you suppose you are going to continue doing your job anyway with vertigo as severe as to require steroid treatment anyway? I don't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> it works <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the U.S. but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> Canada they can not just give <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> job away or let you go because you are sick! If I were you I would look into this with the labor board if your job is that important to you honey.
429949 tn?1224695179 Hi! Most of my symptoms did return after receiving <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the hospital -- but they were not severe. I am guessing your step son is at the end of his relapse, or exacerbation. The steroids helped him through the worst part. That's just my feeling, though. Vertigo can be different, too, I think. When I had a very bad episode of vertigo (was kept overnight in the hospital-couldn't stand on my own), it took really months for it to resolve.
Avatar f tn The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> helps with reducing inflamation,<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> on infusions and taper off.The steroids will leave a nasty taste in your mouth.Mints help.Drink plenty of fluids.The first round of steroids I had didn't increase my appetite.But the second and third.They can have a tendency to make ya a little aggitated.Me they made me meaner than a junk yard dog without the taper off. I hope this really helps you.
Avatar f tn 10 years ago, I also had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> term <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stay</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> hospital <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a country where I didn't speak the language well. I know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> disorienting and exhausting it can be.
572651 tn?1333939396 how fitting... MS Awareness week during the week of my birthday... huh. lol Big 'ole 32 tomorrow :) and I think I may be having a flare-up. I just learned there is a difference between "flare-up" and "attack". Been dizzy and light headed for two days now. Maybe it's just the solu-medrol infusions...? HVAC - I miss VA!!!! Have an awesome time in Roanoke.
147426 tn?1317269232 I KNOW I'M TIRED OF THE solu-medrol inFUSIONS,I HAD THEM FOR 5 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS THEN THE SPECIALIST RAN THAT ONE LAST NIGHT in 15 MinUTES TO SHOCK MY <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>system</span>. GEEZ <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> MANY ATTACKS CAN WE HAVE <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> A YEAR? I TRY TO <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stay</span> ACTIVE,I CAN'T EVEN GO TO THE FITNESS CENTER RIGHT NOW. how long does IT TAKE TO GET A ARM BACK TO WORKinG.I'M RIGHT HANDED AND IT ISN'T GOOD TO HAVE THE RIGHT ARM AND HAND GO BAD.
Avatar m tn It is interesting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> they managed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> rejection episodes. I never heard about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span>, they treating mine with a month of prednison (starting with 20 mg and decreasing to 5 mg after 4 weeks), as well as increase in prograf to 6 mg/day. (OK, I googled it, it is also some sort of steroid). I wonder if BT’s doctors plan to modify his AR meds after he stops tx in 2 wks? Thank you much for your thoughts Mike. The very best to you. Jeff.
149918 tn?1208132344 Now, if your rash takes off and cannot be abated or controlled by the prednisone as described above, try an 125mg IV of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> is an IV steroid similar to prednisone (i.e. it's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the same class of drugs). It's similar, but it isn't the same thing, so don't let some jive talking doctor try and tell you it is the same thing and won't work any better than prednisone.
542342 tn?1227532354 Ok, first of all I had a lot of pain in my neck (literally) so I saw a neuro and had my first MRI in 1991. He had the results and showed me the MRI's of my c-spine. First he told me that I had a buldging disc at level C 4-5 and I was very relieved until he saw that relief and stated quite compassionatly "that's not the problem we are concerned have a glioma in your spinal cord and no one would touch this with radiation or with surgery due to the severe consequences.
645390 tn?1338558977 She is very encouraged with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> well I did with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> this time, that it is even a better indicator of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> Tysabri would go. I will be on it for 1 year, then see what is next. I am - JC virus, and fit the rest of the categories, that "allows" me to be on Tysabri. It is a TOUCH program and with every infusion there is lots of protocol before the IV and after the IV.
199882 tn?1310188142 When I'm coming off the solu-medrol or the prednisone my legs have gotten extremely painful and it was very difficult to walk. Try to conserve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> energy as much as you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> pass <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> time. I do not like the cold as it causes the spasms to go wonky especially the paraspinal and legs but the heat makes me witchy,sends my vision into a tizzy and my numbness increases. I like to keep the house around 66 but thats hard with 2 fire places and the kids complain so they'll throw logs in.
Avatar f tn People with MS are no more prone to sinus infections than the general population. As with any infection, if you have MS, it needs treatment at once since any disruption in the body's immune system, can spell "flair-up.
Avatar m tn I've read that some people have attacks lasting as long as 6 months, but generally symptoms get better as time goes on; not worse. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> should I allow the symptom to get worse before I go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> and see a Neurologist again? The process is just so mentally stressful that I'm afraid it will trigger a pseudo-exacerbation and I can't handle that right now. I am beginning to become concerned that I am heading into SPMS territory and out of RRMS territory.
Avatar f tn Hi SP - IVSM (intravenous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span>) was a gift for me. The relapse that lead to my diagnosis had me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a mess. I couldn't walk straight, when I had the energy to walk, was seeing double 24/7 etc., etc. After 5 days of IVSM I began to get my life back.
Avatar m tn The diagnoses' of diabetes and ITP didn't come until after I had had IV <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> back-to-back months, less than 30 days apart. Not long after the second round of steroids I was admitted to the hospital with a blood sugar of 1354. The ITP diagnoses came later that same year. First we treated it with, wait for it..., steroids. Each dose shot my BS's sky-high and required insulin injections.
1172359 tn?1310671293 don't feel this was for nothing since the medicine is still doing its thing in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> body. i was told that the steroids <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stay</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>system</span> for a bout a month, so the numbness may subside again. take your klonapin. watch t.v. do anything to help take your mind off of how you feel. hugs to you, cindy.
462771 tn?1358359443 You've gotten good advice, just wanted to welcome you, and mention that having O-Bands present <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> spinal fluid, and not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> blood serum, make a demyelinating disease more likely, and that it's from your central nervous system. You Dr will work through those diseases, and mimics of MS.
147426 tn?1317269232 A nice feedback <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>system</span>. Ideally, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a feedback <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>system</span> like this, the adrenal gland would just immediately resume making the needed amount of cortisol when the person stopped taking the oral steroid. And, this IS what happens if the extra steroid is taken for a "short" period of time (days). however, if the gland sees extra steroids in the blood for too long (more than a week and a half or so), then it gets lazy. It might not kick back into action for a few days or more.
Avatar n tn Jm, maybe your drs know you and are just trying to appease your questions by agreeing with you in that you should wait until the yr mark. Really, if you are svr 9 months post tx, nothing magic is going to happen in 3 more months. is not like the body has a race with the 'residual' hcv in your body and waiting for you to do anything out of the ordinary to jump out and yell: "gotcha!" 3 more months is going to accomplish what in your system? except keep your paranoia at bay.
Avatar f tn Tyler, whatever the censor ******'s out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> title will probably remain a mystery. That happens to me every once <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a while and I can't decide what my sin was. There are some words that they just won't let slip through ---- such as we can't write about pin p r icks they don't like that word. there's a bunch of words like that can be interpreted in a different way. Starting on Betaseron is a good thing - I'm glad the neuro is putting you on a CRAB.
987762 tn?1331031553 Right now, even though you are going through more tests, the neuro could be giving your medicine to treat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>your</span> symptoms. A round of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medrol</span> (IV steroids) might be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> order to help quiet the problems with your legs. Can you call an d ask about this? as for the coping, I am fortunately not to that point and hope that it won't happen to me. I would guess you adapt to the new normal in your life, one day at a time.
