What is Prednisolone?

Prednisolone is a synthetic glucocorticoid drug. It was first synthesized in 1955 and has been available as a prescription drug since the early 1960s. Prednisolone belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids, which are used to reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system. It is available in both oral and injectable forms, and can be taken daily or on an “as needed” basis.
What are the benefits of Prednisolone?

There are many potential benefits of prednisolone treatment, depending on the individual’s medical condition. Some common uses include treating asthma, allergies, arthritis, cancer, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, and other autoimmune disorders. It can also be effective in reducing inflammation following surgery or injury. In some cases it may be able to replace more expensive medications such as chemotherapy drugs or biologics therapies.

How does Prednisolone work?

The precise mechanism by which prednisolone reduces inflammation is not fully understood but it is thought to involve suppression of key proteins involved in the inflammatory response pathway. By blocking these proteins’ action prednisolone can help reduce swelling, pain, and other symptoms associated with inflammation.


When taking prednisolone orally it comes as a tablet or liquid that you take by mouth. The dose you take depends on what condition you are being treated for. Usually the starting dose is between 5-60 mg per day depending on your weight and health condition with doses gradually decreasing over time if needed.

Side effects

Prednisolone can cause a wide range of side effects, depending on the dose and duration of use.

The most common side effects are:

  • weight gain
  • fluid retention,
  • high blood pressure
  • diabetes mellitus (type 2)
  • osteoporosis (bone thinning)
  • cataracts (clouding of the lens)
  • glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye)
  • mood swings.

Less common but more serious side effects include suppression of adrenal gland function (causing Addison’s disease) and Cushing’s syndrome (characterized by excessive fat accumulation around the midsection)

Generic versions of prednisolone are now available which should help reduce costs for patients . Always speak with your doctor before making any changes to your treatment plan.

If you are taking prednisone for a short-term condition such as an allergic reaction or asthma flare-up, you should see improvement within a few days. If you are taking prednisone for a long-term condition such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus erythematosus (LLE), it may take several weeks or months before you notice an improvement in symptoms.

Prednisolone for pregnancy

It can be prescribed for pregnant women to help reduce inflammation and swelling. Prednisolone may also be prescribed to prevent some premature births. When used during pregnancy, prednisolone is typically given in low doses and only if the benefits outweigh the potential risks. Some potential side effects of prednisolone include water retention, weight gain, and high blood pressure. However, when taken as directed by a physician, prednisolone can be a safe and effective treatment option for pregnant women.

Overall, prednisolone can be an effective medication when used appropriately during pregnancy. It should only be prescribed by a physician who has weighed the risks and benefits of its use. When taken under close supervision by a healthcare provider, it can help reduce inflammation and swelling while also preventing some premature births.
