Hi, has anyone taken a Medrol dose pack? It’s a steroid that was prescribed to me for an RA flare. I did ok the first few days, but by day 4 I had terrible nausea and an inflamed feeling in my stomach to the point where I can’t really eat much of anything. I already take omeprazole permanently. The GI doc said years ago that I don’t fit any standard GI diagnosis, I just make too much acid. So the nausea and discomfort are not uncommon for me, but they are still here 4 days after finishing the medrol. My primary said last week I can take a Pepcid with the omeprazole if needed, but I don’t know how long it’s ok to do that.
So the question is, if anyone has had issues during and after a Medrol pack, how long until it resolved?
