Information about IV steroids

Hi all,

Happy snow day ⛄️❄️.

Looking for advice on steroids basically I want to know how long IV steroids stay in your system?

Does anyone know?

I had them in 12th 13th& 14th of Feb. I have been free of some of my physical MS symptoms since but had really bad headaches.

Wondering if this could be the steroids or the lemtrada….

When do the steroids ‘wear off’ ? Anyone know?

Thanks for reading 😊

@kitty369 , the steroids that are given are actually produced by your own body. Just not at the dosages you recently received.

The Steroids are usually still working in your body for 6 – 8 weeks following treatment.

It could well be the Lemtrada causing the problem. It’s important that you maintain an adequate intake of water to help flush this out of your system.
