Infertility

Medrol Question

First off, this Medrol is some nasty stuff!!  It even leaves a horrible taste in my mouth and down my throat that won't go away.. ugh

I knew it makes you  go to the bathroom all night long.  But I think it's causing a ringing in my ears. The other meds I've taken before, estrace and doxy, and don't remember this side effect, so I'm wondering if Medrol is the culprit, and if anyone else is having this side effect.

Can't wait to be done with this pill!!

Thanks for any input!!

  • Hahaha! Thanks ladies!!!

    Maybe the rining in my ears just means this whole process has driven me a bit crazy! Smile  I noticed it two days and it only lasts about 10 min or so.. It's wierd!

    Yeah.. I keep telling myself, I'm half way done with Medrol!!!  Nasty little pill!

  • I agree, I preferred the needles to that.  The best way I found to avoid the nasty taste was to tip my head back and drop the pill as far down my throat as I could.  Sometimes it worked and sometimes not.  

    I had the bathroom issue too, but I did not experience any ringing in my ears.

    Hopefully you'll be done with it soon!!
