    Question Anyone ever do a "Steroid pack"?

    Anyone ever do a "Steroid pack"? I think that is what the Dr called it? It was a big pack of BIG pills, steroids, that I had to take for my back. This is what he says helped me in my quick recovery.

    The first day was like 10 pills, next day 9, then 8, and one less a day until gone.

    I wonder if there are any bad side effects from taking these?

    Yes, I did a few years ago for gout. I took the first day's pills all at once too. I figured I'd OD or get better. It was like a switch going off. I went from a week of terrible pain and barely being able to walk to cutting a rug in a matter of a few hours. It's an amazing drug (if you're not allergic to it.) Take the pills - don't hesitate. Good luck w/your ailment... I hope you recover as fast as I did.

    Every other year or so, I take a reducing steroid pack similar to that to reduce sinus issues. It seems to last quite a while.

    I took Winstrol V, HGH, and dianabol all at the same time once.





    Oh, wait we are talking about different kinds of steroids.

    Side effects are pretty limited when you take them in a short course of treatment over a week or so. When you start taking prednisone/steroids for inflammation on a long term basis the side effects are system wide, meaning they screw you up all over.
    When taking them for your back remember this a "bandaid" to quickly reduce inflammation and not a long term fix. Make sure you get an MRI if you haven't already, but your doc prescribing them tells me he knows you have a disc bulge or possibly a more serious herniation.
    One short term use side effect can be altered sleep, meaning you can't fall asleep. Another side effect is you might feel better than before taking them leading to further more serious injury because you are no longer careful.
    You are probably taking a Medrol "dose" pack
    good luck

    I've taken them on and off for a few years for my back. I never noticed any side effects, other than the back pain went away.
    I'm past that point now. Now, they don't do anything for the pain...so, it sucks to be me.....LOL
