Quick question about medrol. Fast responses are appreciated.

I have to take Medrol for 6 days and today I have to take 6 pills of Medrol , so I just want to know if I should take all 6 pills at once or gradually take them throughout the day?

Thanks in advance.

I would spread them out 2-2-2, but you might want to call pharmacy for instructions for the proper dosing for the rest of the week.

Definitely call the pharmacist. I'm surprised your doc didn't give you specific instructions on how to take it. Usually, you take the most amount on the 1st day and least amount on the last day, so you don't get the rebound effect. Definitely spread the dosing out through the day. I was written an rx for 2 weeks but couldn't tolerate it for more than 2 days- I was way too agitated!
Hope it helps you-
Sambo

I have been put on the Medrol DosePak 3 different times... my doctor told me it was fine to take the first 6 pills in one dose... then the next day take the 5 pills as one dose... next day 4.... and so on until you are finished with them...Hopefully they will have a better effect for you then they did for me...they didnt do anything for me...but I do hope it works for you...

Take Care
