Prednisolone (Tablet) - What is it for

​​Prednisolone is a cortico-steroid, similar to a hormone produced within your body by your adrenal glands. It reduces the activity of the body's immune system, resulting in decreased inflammation. It is used to treat various conditions such as allergic eye disorders, severe cornea transplant rejection, and excessive inflammation involving the eye and orbit, such as uveitis, scleritis, optic neuritis and thyroid eye disease.
