Frequently asked questions about Methylprednisolone

Methylprednisolone is a prescription anti-inflammatory medication. It is used to treat a variety of conditions, including arthritis, blood disorders, certain cancers, severe allergic reactions, eye conditions, immune system disorders, and diseases of the skin, kidneys, intestines, or lungs. It belongs to a family of medications called glucocorticoids, which reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system.

As an anti-inflammatory steroid, methylprednisolone may be used to treat a wide range of conditions. Usually, it’s used for autoimmune disorders, cancer, conditions related to swelling, such as:

Allergic reactions Conditions related to blood cells or platelets Conditions related to transplanted organs Skin conditions Nervous system conditions Kidney conditions Lung conditions Eye conditions Fever and inflammation Gout Lupus Multiple sclerosis Multiple types of arthritis Pneumonia

Methylprednisolone is an anti-inflammatory steroid that blocks your immune system from releasing into the body the chemicals that cause inflammation and uncomfortable symptoms.

Inflammation is a bodily response that your immune system uses to attack harmful substances and heal trauma. Problems, however, can occur when your immune system loses the ability to control inflammation and triggers inflammatory responses without reason - leading to painful, irritating symptoms that can cause chronic conditions.

Methylprednisolone works by blocking the chemicals that are released during inflammation responses. Inhibiting these chemicals reduces swelling and inflammation and relieves pain.

While there are some common side effects associated with methylprednisolone, it is important to remember that your doctor prescribed this medication because its benefits - bringing inflammation back under control - outweigh its possible adverse effects.

Common side effects of Methylprednisolone include, but are not limited to:

Upset stomach Stomach irritation Vomiting Headache Dizziness Insomnia Restlessness Depression Anxiety Acne Increased hair growth Easy bruising Disrupted menstrual periods

These side effects may get better over time as your body gets used to the medication. Let your doctor know if these symptoms persist or worsen over time. If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately:

Skin rash Swollen face, lower legs, or ankles Vision problems Cold or infection that lasts a long time Muscle weakness Black or tarry stool

Once taking Methylprednisolone, it will be a few days to a few weeks before you begin to feel the effects of the drug. How long you take Methylprednisolone will depend on the condition you are treating.

Methylprednisolone is taken as an oral tablet. The dosage may vary from 4mg to 48mg per day, depending on the condition being treated and its severity. The initial dosage will be maintained or adjusted until your doctor determines that the desired result has been achieved. After your doctor notes your favorable response to methylprednisolone, they will determine a maintenance dose by gradually decreasing the initial dosage until the minimal effective dose is determined. Generally, it will be prescribed for as short a period as possible while still providing relief. You should continue to take Methylprednisolone (even if you begin to feel better) until instructed otherwise by your doctor. If a dose of Methylprednisolone is missed, you should take another dose as soon as you remember.

Methylprednisolone is currently only available via prescription. This means the use of this drug must be authorized by a licensed health care provider.
