Received iv treatments of iron dextran. Have sore throat, pain. Side effect?
Hi I have received 3 iron iv treatments of iron dextran. I was experiencing lower back pain and was prescribed methlyprednisolone which I am suppose to start day 3 today but haven t yet. My throat started to hurt last night and this morning it hurts really bad. I don t know if this is a side effect and I should go to the ER or just take some cough meds, I had no sore throat before this.
Hi Thanks for your query I can feel your concern yes this may be the side efffects of steroids you are usig, you should do gargles and take some green tea . I recommend to have a proper clinical examination Hope it helps Regards Dr imran
