Medrol 

Indication

Medrol (Methylprednisolone) belongs to a group of medications called corticosteroids.Corticosteroids are hormones that are produced naturally in our body, and necessary for many important bodily functions.

Medrol (Methylprednisolone) is a synthetic (man-made) corticosteroid medication that has been developed to imitate the actions of naturally occurring corticosteroid hormones in the body. A particularly important action of methlyprednisolone is to relieve inflammation that causes symptoms such as swelling, itching, and redness.

Symptoms of inflammation are often seen with allergic reactions such as severe allergic skin reactions, reactions to insect bites, and Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) (a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction). Other conditions and symptoms associated with inflammation can also be treated with corticosteroids. These include painful swollen joints caused by Arthritis, and relief of Asthma symptoms caused by inflamed breathing passages.

Medrol (Methylprednisolone) may also be used by people who are not able to produce enough of their own corticosteroid naturally (e.g., Addison's Disease). Additional conditions that may be treated with Medrol (Methylprednisolone) include severe skin conditions (e.g., psoriasis), certain eye conditions, Ulcerative Colitis, certain blood disorders, Leukemia, Lupus, and Multiple Sclerosis.

Medrol (Methylprednisolone) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Medrol (Methylprednisolone) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Medrol (Methylprednisolone) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Medrol (Methylprednisolone) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Medrol (Methylprednisolone), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Medrol (Methylprednisolone) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Medrol (Methylprednisolone) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Medrol (Methylprednisolone) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Medrol 

Dosage

The recommended dose of Medrol (Methylprednisolone) varies widely depending on the condition being treated, response to the medication, the form of the medication being used, the age and size of the person using the medication, and individual circumstances.

The dose of the tablet form may range from 4 mg to 48 mg of Medrol (Methylprednisolone) daily, or even much higher depending on the specific condition being treated.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Injectable medications are given either into a muscle, into a joint, or into a vein by a qualified health professional.

It is important to take Medrol (Methylprednisolone) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose of the medication and are taking the medication once a day, but don't remember until the next day, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. If you are taking the medication more than once daily, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Medrol (Methylprednisolone) at room temperature, protect it from freezing, and keep it out of the reach of children.
