How does Methylprednisolone work?
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.
What are the most common side effects of Methylprednisolone?
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.

How long does it take for Methylprednisolone to work?
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.
What is the typical starting dose of Methylprednisolone?
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.
