Taking Medication Before The MCU Will Affect The Results Of The MCU?
Hello .. r nI want to ask. Tomorrow I’m going to the MCU but today I’m still taking 4 mg of methylprednisolone … because I have sore throat … will it affect the blood test results huh … r nThank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The methylprednisolone drug that you are taking is a corticosteroid class of drugs that are given to suppress the immune system, reduce inflammatory reactions and symptoms that arise from it, such as pain, swelling, mucus or phlegm and the like. This drug is often given to treat various diseases such as allergies, infections, asthma, and many more.
Regarding your question, this drug does not directly affect the results of the MCU, but some things to know is that this drug can suppress the therapeutic effect of diabetes drugs. So if you have diabetes, maybe your blood sugar results can be slightly affected. This medicine can also increase the blood thinning effect, and can have side effects on the digestive tract in the form of nausea and vomiting, heartburn, stomach pain, indigestion, dizziness, difficulty sleeping, and high blood pressure. So it could be that the complaints that you may convey tomorrow have something to do with current drug consumption. But again, this is not always the case and also depends on what is checked in your MCU examination. So, hopefully it answers your question.
