Side effects of Medrol Dose Pack
Thu, 04-03-2003 - 8:23pm
I was diagnosed with PUPPPs today. My midwife mentioned taking the medrol dose pack as a possible treatment. I told her I wanted to take the night to research.

So far, all I've found out is that this is rare, painful and the only cure is giving birth! Seeing as I'm only at 32 weeks, giving birth isn't really an option yet.

Is the Medrol Dose Pack safe for use during pregnancy? What kind of effects could it have on me and or the baby.

Thanks...I can't seem to get the answers anywhere else.
