Prednisolone is a synthetic, biologically active corticosteroid of high glucocorticoid activity, with minimal mineralocorticoid action. Prednisolone nonspecifically inhibits the inflammatory process, suppressing local heat, pain, oedema and swelling. It also acts to suppress the local immune reaction, without inhibiting the general immune response at recommended oral dosage regimens. Prednisolone is useful for its anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy and immunosuppressive actions, with minimal risk of sodium retention, electrolyte imbalance or oedema with prolonged low dose therapy. Duration of action is 12 to 36 hours.Prednisolone is well absorbed from the stomach and is not affected by food intake. It is strongly and reversibly protein bound with the unbound portion active, crossing the blood brain-barrier and into the mammary glands. Prednisolone is metabolised in the liver and excreted via urine.
