Methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid hormone prescribed for the treatment of various conditions, including arthritis, blood disorders, severe allergic reactions, specific cancers, eye conditions, skin, kidney, intestinal and lung diseases, and immune system disorders. By reducing the immune system’s response to disease, this medication alleviates symptoms such as swelling, pain, and allergic-type reactions.

Uses and Dosage

Administer this medication orally according to your doctor’s instructions, typically with food or milk. Adhere closely to your dosage guidelines, as the dose and duration of treatment depend on your medical condition and response to therapy.

Multiple dosing schedules are available for this medication. If you do not take the same amount daily or if you take this medication every other day, consider using a calendar reminder.

Do not increase your dose or use this drug more frequently or for a longer duration than prescribed. Your condition will not improve more quickly, and your likelihood of experiencing side effects will increase.

Do not discontinue this medication without first consulting your doctor. Some conditions may deteriorate when this drug is suddenly halted. Your dose may need to be reduced gradually.

If you abruptly cease using this medication, you may experience withdrawal symptoms. To reduce the risk of withdrawal, your doctor may gradually decrease your dose. Withdrawal is more likely if you have taken methylprednisolone for an extended time or in large amounts. Notify your doctor or pharmacist immediately if you experience withdrawal symptoms.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsens.

Consult with your doctor if you have been exposed to an infection or for more information.

Notify your healthcare professional that you are taking methylprednisolone before receiving any immunizations, vaccinations, or skin tests. Avoid contact with people who have recently received live vaccines.

Long-term use of corticosteroid medications may make it difficult for your body to respond to physical stress.

Elderly individuals may be more sensitive to the side effects of this medication, particularly bone loss and pain, stomach or intestinal bleeding, and mental or mood changes (such as confusion).
