Usage Guidelines

Cautions
This medication does not have an FDA approved indication for use in animals, but it is a common and acceptable practice for veterinarians to prescribe this human medication for use in animals.
Steroid medication, such as methylprednisolone, can weaken the immune system, making it easier for your pet to get an infection or worsening an existing infection. Do not use on pregnant, breeding, or nursing animals. Do not administer a "live" vaccine to your pet while the pet is being treated with methylprednisolone. Do not discontinue this medication abruptly without consulting your veterinarian.
Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication or supplements you are giving your pet. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, even if a drug interaction may be anticipated. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. The following drugs can potentially interact with methylprednisolone: amphotericin B, potassium depleting diuretics, digitalisglycosides, salicylates, insulin, phenytoin, phenobarbital, rifampin,cyclosporine, cyclophosphamide, mitotane, erythromycin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and anticholinesterase agents. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together.
Allergic reactions to medications may occur. Be sure to inform Vetsource and your veterinarian if your pet has any known drug sensitivities or allergies. If your pet display ssymptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to:swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; vomiting; widespread hives and itching.
