My doc's service called this in for me as I think I have chostochondritis and wondering how long it will take before it kicks in. She said that if it doesn't help then I need to go to the ER but not exactly sure how long. I've used it before but don't remember how long it takes...I'm so miserable that I wish it would work immedately...

I took medrol pack once. It really didn't do anything for me. I had gone to a GP with pain around my ribs and it hurt to breath in. (I guess I should of seen my rhumey)

I hope it kicks in fast and you get relief soon.

Love,
Lyn

Unfortunately it didn't kick in quick enough as I ended up in the ER for 10 hours last night on morphine while they ruled everything else out. It was chostochondritis but needed some extra pain management.
