What causes dry mouth after taking steroids post tooth extraction?
Further inputs needed
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Could you please specify which antidepressant you are on (is it Zoloft only)? It will help me to let you know that whether a drug interaction is possible. Furthermore, please mention what makes you think that the drugs are reacting.
Meythylprednisolone and Zoloft (sertaline) can have drug interactions. Whether it is concerning would depend on the severity of manifestations.
I will await your response. Let me know if I could help further.
Please mention the reason for which the medicines were prescribed
Thanks for the updates. However, I could not procure the requisite information from the details. It is apparent that you are facing some adverse effects but that does not mean that the drugs are reacting. You have still not told the reason for which the steroids were prescribed.
In any case, the steroids should not be stopped abruptly but can be rapidly tapered off. I would insist you to urgently approach your doctor (or the ER) for the same.
