Methylprednisolone is used for a variety of clinical indications. Indications for methylprednisolone tablets include endocrine disorders, rheumatic disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, collagen diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus, dermatologic diseases, allergic states, respiratory diseases and hematological diseases. Methylprednisolone is similar to another corticosteroid medication, prednisone, although the anti-inflammatory effect of one mg of methylprednisolone is slightly different than that of one mg of prednisone.

Side effects of methylprednisolone include fluid and electrolyte disturbances, weakness, osteoporosis, loss of muscle mass, weight gain, impaired wound healing, headache and growth suppression.

People with an allergy or hypersensitivity to methylprednisolone should not use the medication. Methylprednisolone and alcohol should not be used together. Before using methylprednisolone, patients should discuss likely side effects with one’s medical provider and pharmacist.
