Preparing for your Appointment

Avatar Dr. Kyle Bickel Jun 21, 2019

If you think you’re in a position where your face is getting weaker on one side or both sides, you should immediately go to the emergency department. You don’t need to take anything with you – just your list of medications and things like that. The one thing you’d really want to tell the doctor is if you’re diabetic because the treatment will directly affect diabetics. It’s a very, very strong steroid and people have actually died or gone into shock from having steroids with poorly controlled diabetes.
