MethylPrednisolone Sodium Succinate Injection
Composition : 40mg,125mg,500mg,1gm
How does it work? Methylprednisolone is a type of medicine known as a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are hormones produced naturally by the adrenal glands which have many important functions, including control of inflammatory responses. Methylprednisolone sodium succinate is a synthetic corticosteroid and is used mostly short term in severe conditions to decrease inflammation. It works by acting within cells to prevent the release of certain chemicals that are important in the immune system. These chemicals are normally involved in producing immune and allergic responses, resulting in inflammation. By decreasing the release of these chemicals in a particular area, inflammation is reduced. This can help control a wide number of disease states, characterised by excessive inflammation.

They include severe allergic reactions, inflammation of the lungs in asthma and inflammation of the joints in arthritis. Methylprednisolone also decreases the numbers of white blood cells circulating in the blood. This, along with the decrease in inflammatory chemicals, can prevent the rejection of organ transplants, as it prevents the body from attacking foreign tissue. Methylprednisolone is used in much higher doses than the levels of corticosteroids produced naturally by the body, and as such, the usual actions of corticosteroids become exaggerated and can be observed as side effects of this medicine.
