    • Generic Medrol Tablets Warnings And Precautions ➔Immunosuppressive Effects/Increased Susceptibility to Infections: Due to their suppression of the inflammatory response and immune function, corticosteroids may increase susceptibility to fungal, bacterial and viral infections and their severity. Chicken pox and measles, for example, can have a more serious or even fatal course in non-immune children or adults on corticosteroids. ➔Blood and Lymphatic System: Aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents should be used cautiously in conjunction with corticosteroids. ➔Hypersensitivity Reactions: Allergic reactions (e.g. angioedema) may occur.© The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
    • Generic Medrol Tablets Warnings And Precautions ➔Endocrine: Pharmacologic doses of corticosteroids administered for prolonged periods may result in hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) suppression (secondary adrenocortical insufficiency). ➔Metabolism and Nutrition: Corticosteroids, including methylprednisolone, can increase blood glucose, worsen pre-existing diabetes and predisposes those on long term corticosteroid therapy to diabetes mellitus; therefore, corticosteroids should be used with caution in patients with, or a family history of, diabetes mellitus. ➔Psychiatric: Psychic derangements may appear when corticosteroids are used, ranging from euphoria, insomnia, mood swings, personality changes, and severe depression to frank psychotic manifestations.© The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
    • Generic Medrol Tablets Warnings And Precautions ➔ Nervous System: Corticosteroids should be used with caution in patients with seizure disorders or in patients with myasthenia gravis. ➔Ocular: Corticosteroids should be used cautiously in patients with ocular herpes simplex because of possible risk of corneal scarring, loss of vision and corneal perforation. ➔Cardiovascular: Systemic corticosteroids should be used with caution, and only if strictly necessary, in cases of congestive heart failure. ➔Hepatobiliary: Corticosteroids should be used with caution in patients with hepatic failure. There is an enhanced effect of corticosteroids on patients with cirrhosis.© The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
    • Generic Medrol Tablets Warnings And Precautions ➔Gastrointestinal: Corticosteroids should be used with caution in nonspecific ulcerative colitis if there is a probability of impending perforation, abscess or other pyogenic infection, diverticulitis, fresh intestinal anastomoses, or active or latent peptic ulcer. ➔Musculoskeletal: Corticosteroids should be used with caution in patients with myasthenia gravis who are receiving anticholinesterase therapy as corticosteroid use may decrease plasma anticholinesterase activity. ➔Renal and Urinary: Corticosteroids should be used with caution in patients with renal insufficiency.© The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
    • Generic Medrol Tablets Warnings And Precautions ➔Investigations: Average and large doses of hydrocortisone or cortisone can cause elevation of blood pressure, salt and water retention, and increased excretion of potassium. ➔Discontinuation: A steroid “withdrawal syndrome”, seemingly unrelated to adrenocortical insufficiency, may occur following abrupt discontinuance of glucocorticoids. ➔Injury, Poisoning and Procedural Complications: High doses of systemic corticosteroids should not be used for the treatment of traumatic brain injury.© The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
    • Generic Medrol Tablets Overdose Symptoms There is no clinical syndrome of acute overdosage with corticosteroids.
