What is Wysolone (Prednisolone) used for?
Wysolone (Prednisolone) is an oral corticosteroid prescribed to treat a wide variety of inflammatory conditions, allergic disorders, or arthritis. It operates by preventing the action of enzymes that are released in response to injury that cause the swelling, pain, and irritation associated with these conditions. This action makes it useful for treating rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, some allergic reactions, carditis, or inflammation of connective tissues. Your physician may prescribe this medication to be used along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
