Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is a strong steroid at high doses.

This can cause headache as side effect.

Can last for a week.

Your blood pressure should be checked.

Methyl prednisolone can cause high blood pressure resulting in severe headaches.

If blood pressure is normal, then tylenol or excedrine migraine can be used to control headaches.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
