Side effects of Solupred (Methylprednisolone)

Patient

Q: I have been prescribed solupred 20mg, once daily for 7 days for a nasal congestion. I am very concerned about the side effects especially weight gain. How probable is this? thanks

Doctor

A:   Solupred (Methylprednisolone) is usually prescribed in certain severe ENT conditions (as an adjunct therapy) for quick symptomatic relief. It is safe when taken under a doctor's supervision and has no side effects like weight gain if consumed over a short duration (like 7 days).
