I just started a pack of Methylprednisolone for terrible tendonitis in my ankles. I am only on a 4 mg dose pack, which tapers off day by day. This first day, I am starting off with 6 pills (2 before breakfast, 1 after lunch, 1 after supper and 2 before bed). In two days, on Saturday, I have an event to attend which will involve alcohol. Am I safe to have a couple of drinks? I am not sure how alcohol affects your system if you're on steroids. I am a heathly young female. I have no other conditions, other than a period episode of syncopy, which has been very much under control in the past 2 years. Any suggestions? I really don't want to avoid drinking, because it will be a big celebration.
