Prednisolone tablets 5 mg Asahi Kaisei for allergy and inflammation (Millipred, corticosteroid)
What are Prednisolone 5 mg tablets for allergy and inflammation (Millipred, corticosteroid)?
Prednisolone is a synthetic corticosteroid medication. It provides potent anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties, making Prednisolone tablets a versatile treatment option for various conditions and their consequences.
Prednisolone tablets function by entering the cells and influencing the synthesis of specific proteins that help combat inflammation. They achieve this by promoting the production of anti-inflammatory proteins while simultaneously blocking the transcription of genes responsible for inflammation. This dual mechanism enables Prednisolone tablets to effectively alleviate inflammation and its associated symptoms.
Prednisolone is commonly utilized in surgical procedures, internal medicine, and pediatrics to address allergic reactions and inflammation. These tablets prove highly effective in treating conditions such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, urticaria, angioedema, Crohn's disease, Kawasaki disease, multiple sclerosis, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, autoimmune hepatitis, and systemic lupus. By reducing inflammation and suppressing allergic responses, Prednisolone tablets provide relief from symptoms such as swelling, redness, pain, and itching. Prednisolone tablets have been recognized for their therapeutic efficacy and safety by being included in the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines.
