    I was given this for my herniated discs in my neck and arthritis in my back. It does absolutely nothing for me. I don't even get side effects from it! My neck & back still hurt everyday. I hope this works better for others.

    Prescribed for crackle in lung, possible pneumonia or bronchitis hanging on after antibiotics. Took Medrol dose pak as directed and on day 6 woke up extremely dizzy, felt faint, elevated heart rate, 116, blood pressure all over the place. face pale. Stopped taking immediately. It took a week before I began to feel normal.

    I took the 6 day pack, I found this drug horrible. I had dizziness, vertigo, the 6th day was the worst!!!! Its now been 2 days past and I still dont feel normal. I dont feel myself, I have tingling in my feet and my head feels weird. My doc I think gave it to me for inflammation, I have had dizziness for almost a year now. I dont want to take this drug again!!!
