What are the side effects of Methylprednisolone?
find the answer below.
Welcome to health care magic, I share your concern and I will try to help you out in best possible way.
Methylprednisolone is a steroid that prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. It is used to treat many different inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, allergic disorders, gland (endocrine) disorders, and conditions that affect the skin, eyes, lungs, stomach, nervous system, or blood cells.
Methylprednisolone can weaken your immune system, making it easier for you to get an infection. Steroids can also worsen an infection you already have, or reactivate an infection you recently had. Hence you should tell your doctor about any illness or infection you have had within the past several weeks.
Common side effects of methylprednisolone include:
mild muscle pain or weakness; or
stomach discomfort, bloating etc.. However you need to be vigilant 2 notify your doctor if any of the following side effects occur,
blurred vision, tunnel vision, eye pain, or seeing halos around lights;
shortness of breath (even with mild exertion), swelling, rapid weight gain;
severe depression, changes in personality, unusual thoughts or behavior;
new or unusual pain in an arm or leg or in your back;
bloody or tarry stools, coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds;
Coming to your last question, there are no proven evidence to suggest that methylprednisolone should not be taken by stroke victims, hence you can use methylprednisolone.
I hope this helps you

find the answer below.
I appreciate your follow up..
I have read your question and understand your concerns
Trazodone is an antidepressant medicine. It affects chemicals in the brain that may be unbalanced in people with depression. The usual dosage is 100 to 150 mg per day and later 50 mg every 3-4 days as maintenance dose.
You should report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor, such as: mood or behavior changes, anxiety, panic attacks, trouble sleeping, or if you feel impulsive, irritable, agitated, hostile, aggressive, restless, hyperactive (mentally or physically).
Coming to prozac, a selective serotonin re uptake inhibitor used to treat depression. Its common side effects may include:
sleep problems (insomnia), strange dreams;
headache, dizziness, vision changes;
tremors or shaking, feeling anxious or nervous;
pain, weakness, yawning, tired feeling;
upset stomach, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea;
dry mouth, sweating, hot flashes;
changes in weight or appetite;
stuffy nose, sinus pain, sore throat, flu symptoms; or
decreased sex drive, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm.
Thus there is no proven evidence to indicate that it causes dementia, but do report to your doctor if you encounter any of the above side effects.
Hope this clarifies your doubts. Revert back to me if you have follow up queries.
