I was taking prednisone for my hand tremors and shakes but now my neurologist wants me to do 3 days of infusion therapy. Has anyone ever had to do infusion therapy and what do they infuse you with?
I've had a 3 day course of IV steroids which worked wonders for me whilst in hospital so if that is what your infusion therapy is there is nothing to worry about other than an inability to sleep. Good luck
@A MyMSTeam Member,
Solu Medrol (Generic: Methylprednisolone)
is a prescription medicine used to treat the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. It may be administered by intravenous or intramuscular injection or by intravenous infusion.
There are doctors that use this method initially for a Relapse and it is usually use when an individual has Optic Neuritis (damage to the optic nerve).
If you feel medically comfortable with your Neurologist I suggest that you follow his/her direction.
The Very Best To You!
Steroids? Hate it, however; it is sometimes the only thing that helps with painful relapse symptoms. Good luck
I’ve had this several times.. it’s a strong medication but it works.
