Prednisolone - benefit information.

Prednisolone belongs to a group of medicines called steroids.
Their full name is corticosteroids. These corticosteroids occur
naturally in the body and help to maintain health and well-being.
Boosting your body with extra corticosteroid (such as
prednisolone) is an effective way to treat various illnesses
involving inflammation in the body. Prednisolone reduces this
inflammation, which could otherwise go on making your condition
worse. You must take this medicine regularly to get maximum
benefit from it.
