High Dose IV Steroids

Recommended Posts

My son my be looking at high-dose IV steroids as the next step in his recovery. Don't know the dose but I have read fr88's post and she was given 30 mg./kg which I think would be about 1,500 mg for my son--obviously for a short period of time. I know this dosage sounds crazy, but I also know that similar amounts are given to patients with MS (actually even high dosages).


I was wondering if there are others besides fr88 who have had high-dose IV steroids given to their children and what the results were. I am not talking about the 30-day taper which is usually between 40 and 80 mg. or the 5-day burst that so many children are given.


Thank you.
