Prednisolone contains the active ingredient prednisolone, which belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids or “steroids”. Steroids work by reducing inflammation and lowering the body’s immune response. Prednisolone Oral Solution is used to treat a variety of inflammatory diseases including severe asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, allergic reactions, severe skin and eye conditions, and some blood disorders. These corticosteroids occur naturally in the body and help to maintain health and well-being. Boosting your body with extra corticosteroids is an effective way to treat various illnesses involving inflammation in the body. Prednisolone reduces this inflammation, which could otherwise go on making your condition worse. You must take this medicine regularly to get maximum benefit from it. Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. It is best to take the oral solution undiluted. The solution should preferably be taken as a single dose in the morning. In children, the medicine should preferably be taken as a single dose on alternate days. Take this medication by mouth, with food or milk to prevent stomach upset, exactly as directed by your doctor. If you suddenly stop using this medication, you may have withdrawal symptoms (such as weakness, weight loss, nausea, muscle pain, headache, tiredness, dizziness). To help prevent withdrawal, your doctor may lower your dose slowly.
