I had a root canal and four days later was till having constant dull ache. My dentist put me on this for three days and the pain started going away the first day. No side effects at all, very happy with the results.

After suffering over a month with strep-throat and a sinus infection I had immediate relief with this med. However, it raised my blood glucose amount and I had some painful foot swelling. On a positive note, it did reduce my hunger cravings. I actually lost weight!

I was given this medication to take as i had mild case of 'Proctitis' (10mg a day) and WOW! within days my inflammation was gone, and my skin rashes dissapeared my complextion became unblemished, my face became more rounder a looked 21 (instead of 38) i felt confident i had huge amounts of energy with very little sleep i looked and felt better. I was only on them for a month afterwards i felt ok my rashes return a little but i kept my weight down by not eating (down from 69 kg to 67 kg now) I still take these now and again (10mg a day for up to 2 weeks) because the boost it gives me in unbelievable, without my Doctor knowing the only side effects were i could'nt sleep much, but thats a small price to pay i would take these forever i it was'nt for on thing... it reduces bone denisty.. thats why i only take about 10mg a day for 2 weeks maybe once every 3 months. My god this is my NZT......... Johnny B UK 5'10" 67 KG

My doctor prescribed MethyIPREDNISolone to correct a sinus problem that lingered for 30 days without an infection. I wish I consulted WebMD before taking the medication. I thought it would increase my immune system, apparently it does the opposite! Could have done without it and it side effects: nausea, sweats, rectal bleedings, tiredness, increase in appetite, moods swings and rage! I took my last tablet yesterday, from a serie of 21 tablets 4mg for 6 days. The side effects surpass the benefits! I would not recommended not even to my enemy!
