Predonine tablets 5 mg (Millipred, prednisolone, corticosteroid)
What are Predonine Tablets 5 mg (Millipred, prednisolone, corticosteroid)?
An active principle of Predonine tablets is prednisolone, a synthetic corticosteroid medication. It provides a wide range anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and metabolic actions. Prednisolone works by entering the cells and facilitating the synthesis of anti-inflammatory proteins while simultaneously blocking the transcription of genes responsible for triggering inflammation. This mechanism helps to alleviate symptoms and manage various conditions effectively.
Predonine tablets have proven to be effective in a variety of medical fields, including surgery, internal medicine, and pediatrics. They are commonly used to address allergic reactions and inflammation associated with conditions such as asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, urticaria, angioedema, Crohn's disease, Kawasaki disease, multiple sclerosis, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, autoimmune hepatitis, and systemic lupus.
