    depo medrol 80 injection
    Can it cause sleep disturbance? I had two shots today for sinus infection and know that one causes sleep disturbance which is dexamethasone. If depo medrol 80 is in the same family as dexamethasone, I will be awake for days.

    I have been taking the shot for nearly 4 years and the only side effect I have ever experiences is loss of my period, and frankly it has been wonderful not having to deal with that every month.

    Depo-Medrol depo provera, birth control, steroid, convenience
    My previous post is for the cortio-steroid, NOT the birth control, which is Depo PROVERA. I have all kinds of things to say about Depo Provera (which I was on and regret being on), and none of them are good, except for the convenience.

    Depo-Medrol depo
    The only side effect I've had with depo is that I become easily aroused, almost to the point that I have to have sex, either with my husband or by myself, regardless of where I am. I guess that's not a good thing.
