Oral Steroid information

This drug belongs to the group of medicines known as glucocorticoids. Prednisolone can be used to help control inflammatory and allergic disorders such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and colitis by suppressing inflammation.

Prednisolone is available in tablet, soluble tablet and injection form. It is also available in enteric-coated form, which means they do not start to break down until they have travelled through the stomach and have reached the small intestine. This reduces the risk of stomach irritation.
