solu-medrol vs. solu-cortef ??

  1. What's the difference ? I have a really hard time with steroids, and
    remembering all of them. Anyone else with this problem?

    Anyone with tips on making it easier?

    Solu-Medrol is prednisone. Solu-Cortef is cortisone. Both are immediate acting. You will find Solu-Medrol being given where reducing swelling is more of a priority than the response to the inflammation. Solu-Cortef is given when reducing the inflammation is more the priority. However, both do act on both problems.
