How does Depo-Medrol work?
Depo-Medrol has an effect on virtually every organ system in the body. Depo-Medrol is a corticosteroid that blocks the production of substances that trigger allergic and inflammatory actions. Depo-Medrol 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.
