My neurologist gave this to me for migraines. Not only did it make me very nauseous, I couldn' sleep, I had back spasms. After I took them all, I couldn't control my legs and was unable to walk for a period of time without my husband's help. Never again. A horrible drug!!

My ear nose and throat doctor prescribed this to me to help with chronic sinusitus prior to sinus surgery. I can't realy tell a difference in my sinus, but I am terrible thirsty and my heart rate is fast and irregular at times. I can't sleep and feel dizzy. I'm done with the pack and you can believe I am never taking this again!

Got bitten on the hand by a mosquito or some sort of insect at an outdoors bbq. My hand swelled up the next day to 2x normal size and was hot, itchy and unconfortable. Doctor prescribed the 5 day methylpred pack and it worked. can't recall any side effects, slept normal and within 2 days my hand went nack to normal size.
