default
Posted on Wed, 5 Jul 2017
Question: I am having a reaction to Medrol pack 4 mg tabs. Red face and ears. Sweating during the first night. I have nearly completed the second row of pills. I was also told to take Zyrtec 24 hour over the counter for 7 days and also Zantac twice a day for 7days. The wasp stings are completely healed. Can I stop the Medrol and just take the Zyrtec for the next 5 days?

Brief Answer:
Why were you on medrol pack?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed your information fully. I will like to have some more information especially on why you were on medrol pack. This will guide me on whether it is appropriate to stop or not. If you were concerned about possible withdrawal effects, the risk here is minimal and we need no tapering off.

First, let me here from you before concluding.
