Common Questions and Answers about Solu medrol and pregnancy

solumedrol

I was diagnosed in 2000 with MS, and for years I have been getting IV <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol treatments every other month, for three days. Is it possible this affects my menstrual cycle? Can solu-medrol cause not building up the endometrium? Don't worry, I have had all tests: blood, bone density, ultrasound, pregnancy, and I am very healthy: un-pregnant, taking birth control, and so on. I "only" have MS. My period doesn't happen and I am way too young for menopause.
I was treated with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol IV for 3 days and now am having some rebound symptoms and a little anxiety. But my husband and I want to try to get pregnant in the next couple of months. I heard that some symptoms can almost disappear when pregnant. I am also on copaxone and my neuro said to stay on it until I find out that I am pregnant. I have read that you should stop using your meds when you start trying to get pregnant.
My current obestetrician has been using prednisone (or i.v. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol) to treat all of his hyperemesis patients who failed to respond to other antiemetics.

If you truly want to conceive again, I strongly encourage you to ask your doctor about this safe and effective option (ask your doctor to read the article entitled "Hyperemesis Gravidarum" by Goodwin in the September 1998 Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology. Good luck!
) however I just started day 1 of 5 of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span> medrol. I obviously don't know how far along I Am BC my periods aren't normal. What should I do? Need asap help as the nurse will be back in 4 hours Thanks!
he sent me for the mri's and saw the lesions on my spine and immediately started me on in home <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span> medrol. i am again, thankfully symptom free. my sister tried the copaxone and it was not a good drug for her. i am grateful that the ms specialist i was referred to is open to supplements and gave me a list to go on immediately while making my decision. I seem to be the "go to" person for everyone else and I usually have very strong gut instincts.
In the meantime, the majority of research (including lumbar puncture) recommended <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-Medrol for 5 days in a drip.

I had another MRI and saw my neurologist today, and I have to do another 3-day course of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-Medrol followed by oral prednisone. Fun times! He said this should take care of the Hug and spasms, but I need to have a spinal MRI which I've never had. My neuro exams mostly focus on the eyes, balance, and gait. It all depends on if I'm having a flare-up or not. I haven't experienced much in the way of limb problems or muscle weakness. I've been very lucky in that respect.
I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
i was referred to a neurologist who, along with the neuro-opthamologist ran a lot of labs, ana, lyme, esr, cbc,b12, etc. All were normal. This time I got the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol but my vision didn't return to baseline. i wasn't having any other symptoms until January when I began feeling extremely tired and my legs felt wobbly. I started having tingling in my right arm and both legs.
During the fourth week of my second pregnancy, I was hospitalized for a small bowel obstruction (a result of Crohn's Disease), and given intravenous corticosteroids (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol).

-) My question involves <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol steroids.

After I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol infusions,had 2 in 3 months they have always effected my legs and caused great weakness,even a few months after treatments.I'm still recovering after Junes treatment.

Can your doctor set you up with an infusion clinic before you go and see him/her? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol is pretty harsh stuff for your body but it has a habit of calming flareups down (I've had it twice now........) I wish I knew what else to tell you. I'm sure someone here knows something useful. I hope you get better soon.

I am looking to get stories from others who suffer from Chiari Malformation. I am going to send them to Dr. Oz, and try and get him to do a show about Chiari and what we and our families go through. I want to send him a bunch of our stories and I am going to send them to The doctors show, and who ever else we can think of. I figured if I snail mail them a bunch at once, they may pay more attention to it then just an email. Here is my personal email if you want to email me your story.
This took four weeks because you can not have methylprednisolone (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-Medrol) in your system for a specific amount of time, you must be otherwise in good health (lots of blood drawn!), and in the case of the one I'm on you can't have been on any MS treatment previously. This is to help keep the data as clear as possible. If you were on something for years and switch, the waters are a little muddied as to which one ultimately effected your disease course.
For instance, a typical oral dose of Medrol is 20 to 32mg, of prednisone is 40 to 60mg daily. In MS they give 1000mg of the IV (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>)Medrol which is equivalent to 1200mg of prednisone. I clearly have some set prejudices with some of the literature about Lyme. And I am not reading the up-to-date stuff. So no one here should really depend on my assessment. I was not a star in microbiology, I was a pediatrician. Time for breakfast. I just got up.

You will get answers soon. Your in my prayers.
I know neuroinflammation is association with Alzheimer's but with regards to how the nerve cells are destroyed in the latter part of the disease. This one warrants some investigation. IV <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>solu</span>-medrol and/or immunoglobulins are the drugs of choice and greatly reduce the inflammation and stop the immune process in ADEM.
