Hi all. I was hospitalized for 2 in early Feb with a severe asthma attack. Was given neb treatments and IV steriods. Was prescribed 4mg methylpredisolone 6-day dose pak and Flovent 44mg. The medrol seemed to work wonders. Within 3 days of being discharged I was walking over 2 miles/day. The airways felt like I was 25 again (I'm 56). Since, the breathing is ok, but nothing like with the medrol. Can't do the 2 miles. Has anyone had experience with Medrol, and has anyone used it over the long term? I'm aware of possible side effects including Addison's and glaucoma. Thanks for your comments.
