Prednisolone is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat inflammation. Prednisolone is sometimes prescribed to treat allergy symptoms in people with food allergies. Since the FDA has not approved Prednisolone specifically for this usage, it may be considered “off-label.” Some doctors prefer to prescribe Prednisolone rather than Prednisone[LINK] to people who have a history of liver problems.

Prednisolone is a corticosteroid. It is believed that Prednisolone works by suppressing immune system activity.

How do I take it?
Prednisolone is generally taken one or more times per day, or every other day.

Prednisolone is available as a disintegrating oral tablet or a liquid.
