What is Methyl-prednisolone? Methyl-prednisolone is a medication used to treat certain allergies, skin conditions, and arthritis. It can also be used to suppress the immune system.

What are the benefits of Methyl-prednisolone?
  • Easy to administer

Formulated for: Methyl-prednisolone can be given to dogs and cats.

How is this medication given? Methyl-prednisolone is an oral tablet, given by mouth. It may be given with food to avoid stomach upset. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulties giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

How does this medication work? Methyl-prednisolone has an effect on virtually every organ system in the body. Methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid that blocks the production of substances that trigger allergic and inflammatory actions. Methylprednisolone is used to modify the body's immune response. At lower doses it helps to reduce inflammation by decreasing the activity of certain cells and chemicals produced by the body that cause inflammation. At higher doses, it can suppress the immune system by decreasing the number of cells necessary for a proper immune response.

What results can I expect? When used to treat inflammatory conditions, such as certain skin diseases, the success rate is usually good and improvements can be seen in several days. If the methylprednisolone is stopped, signs of the disease may reappear.
