Steroid dosage for exacerbation

Postby Brownsfan » Tue Apr 12, 2011 10:24 am


I've been in remission for the past 6 years until the past couple weeks where I've experienced a recurrance of a prior exacerbation (numbness ant tingling in entire right leg). My job is very demanding and I could not get away to see my neuro, so instead went to an urgent care where they prescribed me a medrol dose pak (21 tabs, 4 mg a piece) followed by an oral prednisone taper. I know this is probably not enough to make a dent in the exacperation, but can't take off an entire day to go to neuro and check into a hospital for the IV medrol. Are there any other options to manage this? Could my oral medrol pak be suffient?
