Side effects of Solupred (Methylprednisolone)

Patient: 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: Solupred (Methylprednisolone) is usually prescribed in certain severe ENT conditions (as an adjunct therapy) for quick s ymptomatic 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).
