Anti-inflammatory corticosteroid Methylprednisolone Acto-Pred

Uses
Acto-Pred (Methylprednisolone) is a corticosteroid medicine. Its anti-inflammatory properties and ability to modify the immune system's response make it useful in treating inflammation and various autoimmune disorders. It can also be used for corticosteroid replacement treatment in patients affected by adrenocortical deficiency. When used to treat inflammation, it can help to suppress the action of chemicals produced by the body as part of the immune system's response or as a reaction to allergies.

This makes it a popular treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions. It can also be used for dermatitis and other skin disorders, as well as cancer, respiratory conditions, ulcerative colitis and a wide range of different disorders. Research showed that its mechanism of action when used for multiple sclerosis involves preventing T cells (which are important for the immune system) from becoming activated, helping to contribute to the apoptosis of active immune cells, as well as other effects.

Dosage and Administration
Acto-Pred (Methylprednisolone) is provided in the form of tablets, which are to be administered by mouth in strict accordance with the instructions given by the doctor. When used as an anti-inflammatory agent, or for immunosuppressive therapy, the dosage that doctors prescribe is normally between 4mg and 48mg per day. Significant differences in the required daily dosage for each individual may occur, and this is because the correct daily dosage is dependent on numerous factors, including the health of the patient and the medical disorder requiring treatment. Patients must comply with the instructions given by their doctor.

Other reactions which have not been listed above are also possible. Talk to your doctor if any side effects occur. The possibility of serious reactions cannot be ruled out, however, this generally occurs less commonly.

Precautions
Grapefruit products could cause a reaction with this medicine, and this may trigger side effects. Your doctor will advise you not to consume grapefruit during treatment.

This medicine affects the body's immune system, and weakens the immune response, leaving the patient vulnerable to infections.

Always use Acto-Pred (Methylprednisolone) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
