In brief: Same thing

Solumedrol (methylprednisolone) is simply one version of an injectable cortisone.

In brief: Solu Medrol (methylprednisolone)

However, neither of these is used regularly for sciatica pain.
Usually steroids like dexamethasone, triamcinolone, betamethasone or methylprednisolone are used a majority of the time in epidural injections.
