Methylprednisolone is a steroid. Steroids work in part by suppressing your body's immune system, and this reduces swelling and inflammation. It is used to treat many different inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, allergic disorders, gland (endocrine) disorders, and conditions that affect the skin, eyes, lungs, stomach, nervous system, or blood cells.
