2nd Day Of Solu Medrol Infusion

2nd Day Of Solu Medrol Infusion

Is it common to have a metalic\ acid taste while having the solu medrol infusion? I noticed this yesterday but today it was a lot more prevelant.

Oh yes! Try sucking on peppermints, they help a lot.

jolly ranchers. Blue raspberry, cherry, watermelon and green apple. Cherry seems to work the best.

jolly ranchers- cherry, blueberry, apple. Start with candy just about 2-3minutes before steroids... keep doing candy for about 5 minutes after.. I haven't gotten continued bad taste if I do this

Not pounding heart... But in the last few days it feels like my entire upper body is vibrating.

Thanks @A MyMSTeam Member was I supposed to taper down after the infusions? They only set me up with the infusions for three days and that's done now. I keep hearing everyone talking about having an MS nurse. I'm wondering if that's something I should have been set up with or maybe my medical provider (Kaiser) doesn't offer it. Hope your having a good holiday weekend.
