More information

  • Usage

    Medrol is the brand name for methylprednisolone, a class of medications known as glucocorticoids. Similar to hydrocortisone, prednisone and triamcinolone, Medrol has significant anti-inflammatory effects in the body. Medrol is thought to exert its effects by binding with receptors inside of cells and influencing the synthesis of proteins. Medrol has a notable effect on the immune system and appears to suppress the actions of immune cells at the site of inflammation as well as the development of inflammatory markers. In addition to being available as Medrol tablets, injectable forms include Depo-Medrol and Solu-Medrol. Medrol can have adverse effects when used at the same time as other medications such as cyclosporine.

  • Medrol Dosepak – Side Effects

    Before using Medrol, is important to discuss concerns and possible side effects with one’s medical provider and pharmacist. Medrol can cause side effects, including muscle weakness, fluid and electrolyte imbalances, heart failure, bone weakness, peptic ulcers and impaired wound healing. Weight gain may also occur with Medrol use, especially after long-term use. Medrol and alcohol should not be used together. People who have a known hypersensitivity to methylprednisolone, Medrol, or other steroid medications or who have systemic fungal infections should not use Medrol.

  • Cost Information

    Medrol is relatively affordable as far as medications are concerned, costing under 50 cents per Medrol 4 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Medrol Dosepak coupons can sometimes be found online and some insurance plans may help with the cost of a Medrol prescription, depending on the coverage. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    Medrol is available a Medrol 2 mg tablets, Medrol 4 mg tablets, Medrol 8 mg tablets, Medrol 16 mg tablets and Medrol 32 mg tablets. Medrol tablets are white and elliptical in shape.
