Your doctor may have prescribed this medication for a variety of reasons. Solu-Cortef contains hydrocortisone which reduces your body’s natural immune response and decreases inflammation and swelling. Therefore, it may help with various conditions such as severe allergies, arthritis, skin disorders and intestinal disease. This medication is also prescribed to patients who do not produce enough steroid hormones naturally, such as people with the condition known as Addison’s disease. As well, Solu-Cortef is used in emergencies when fast treatment and a high dose of hydrocortisone is necessary.
Your body produces steroid hormones naturally in your adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys. Corticosteroids is a class of drugs which mimic the effects of these hormones. Solu-Cortef contains hydrocortisone sodium succinate which belongs to this class of medicine. Corticosteroids weaken your immune system's natural response to various diseases and decrease the associated symptoms such as inflammation and swelling.
