What Other Patients Are Saying About Solupred

Posted March 12th, 2011 by

Solupred is an international brand of prednisolone, a widely prescribed corticosteroid that modifies the body’s immune response and decreases inflammation. It is used to treat a host of inflammatory and autoimmune health conditions, including multiple sclerosis (acute exacerbations), organ rejection, lupus, psoriasis, asthma and ulcerative colitis.

At PatientsLikeMe, where more than 120,000 patients are sharing their experiences with conditions, symptoms, treatments and more, two patients report using Solupred currently while 68 patients report using another form of prednisolone.  What can we learn from these patients’ experiences?  Quite a bit, actually, thanks to PatientsLikeMe’s unique data-sharing platform.  For example, the most commonly reported prednisolone duration amongst current users is two years or more, while the most commonly reported dosage at PatientsLikeMe is 5mg daily.
