    I'm very happy with Methylprednisolone Table 4mg. My pain in my bottom foot disappear that all when I did finish the last day. I had one week with out pain in my bottom foot. I did fallow exactly the instructions and I don't have side effects that all.

    I am taking this drug for fluid retention in my feet, hands, and stomach. It has reduced the fluid with great results and I am on day 3. I have trouble sleeping so I take Ambien and this drug has kept me awake all night even with the Ambien. I had rather not have the fluid and will catch up with my sleep after taking all medicine. So far I have not experienced any other side effects.

The effect on Diabetes Glucose levels is major. BG went up to 300 and taking three times my usual dose did not help much. My Dr did not warn me of this side effect from the drug.
