Doctor :   Depo Medrol (Methylprednisolone) is a corticosteroid that is usually given to relieve any inflammation that may be prese nt in the system. The side effects fo the drugs are usually mild and will resolve on its own. In certain cases the drug can reduce the body's ability to fight against an infection. However since you've only had a single dose of the drug the decreased immunity is less likely.
