What is Methylprednisolone?

Who is it for?
Methylprednisolone is for dogs, cats, and horses.

What are the benefits?

* Methylprednisolone is a powerful anti-inflammatory medication in oral form

* Can also be used to suppress the immune system

Methylprednisolone is a synthetic corticosteroid used in the treatment of many different conditions, including autoimmune diseases such as lupus and some hemolytic anemias. It is also used to treat asthma and certain skin diseases in cats.

How does Methylprednisolone work?
Methylprednisolone 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.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Methylprednisolone is the common drug name and there are multiple generic equivalents available.

How is it given?
Methylprednisolone 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. Dosage depends on the product used. Your veterinarian may recommend starting at a higher dose and then reducing the dose every few days to a week. If on long-term therapy, do not discontinue the drug abruptly. The dose needs to be tapered off over several days to weeks to allow the body to start making its own cortisol again. This medication should only be given to the pet for which it was prescribed.

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. Autoimmune diseases are more difficult to treat and the success rate will depend on the type and severity of the condition.

What form(s) does it come in?
Methylprednisolone comes in an oral tablet form.
