How does methylprednisolone work?

How does methylprednisolone work?

methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid. It’s a lab-made medication that’s similar to cortisol, a natural stress hormone your body makes. Methylprednisolone (methylprednisolone) works by calming down your body’s immune response, which can help get rid of certain medical problems that are caused by a sensitive immune system. In addition, methylprednisolone (methylprednisolone) lowers the amount of inflammatory chemicals that cause pain, redness, itching, and swelling.

Effects of other drugs, drug classes and over-the-counter products on methylprednisolone

Effects of other drugs, drug classes and over-the-counter products on methylprednisolone

The following medications may interact with methylprednisolone:

  • Mutual inhibition of metabolism occurs with concurrent use of cyclosporin and methylprednisolone; therefore, it is possible that adverse events associated with the individual use of either drug may be more likely to occur
  • methylprednisolone may increase the clearance of chronic high dose aspirin. This could lead to decreased salicylate serum levels or increase the risk of salicylate toxicity when methylprednisolone is withdrawn. Aspirin should be used cautiously in conjunction with corticosteroids in patients suffering from hypoprothrombinemia
  • The effect of methylprednisolone on oral anticoagulants is variable. There are reports of enhanced as well as diminished effects of anticoagulant when given concurrently with corticosteroids. Therefore, coagulation should be monitored to maintain the desired anticoagulant effect
