Mode of application

The starting dose depends on the disease and its severity. The dose should be reduced when a positive clinical response is achieved. The maintenance dose should be minimal, for adults it is usually 4–12 mg per day, taken in one dose in the morning. Lower doses are recommended for children. With long-term treatment, taking the drug can be prescribed every other day, once in the morning.
4 mg methylprednisolone is equivalent to 5 mg prednisolone, 4 mg triamcinolone, and 0.75 mg dexamethasone.

Pediatric dosage is based on clinical response. Treatment should be carried out with the lowest effective dose for the shortest period of time. In case of adrenal insufficiency, orally 0.14 mg / kg or 4 mg / m2 per day in 3 doses, for other indications – inside 0.417-1.67 mg / kg or 12.5-50 mg / m2 divided into three doses. If possible, the daily dose should be taken once every other day.
