What is Solu-medrol?

Solu-medrol, also known as Methylprednisolone, is a corticosteroid that is used to treat inflammation in a variety of illness and autoimmune diseases.

Methylprednisolone works by a hormone that is produced in your body’s adrenal glands called cortisol. Cortisol plays a key role in ensuring in regulating your body’s anti- inflammatory processes and other immune functions. 

For many people dealing with inflammatory illnesses, their bodies may not be producing enough cortisol. By providing your body with Methylprednisolone, it helps naturally trigger your body’s immune response to lower inflammation.
