In brief: Not long term
While a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack can reduce inflammation in the short term, it would be important to determine the underlying cause of the ankle swelling for long term relief.

In brief: Depends on the
Reason for the swelling.
You don't really want to be taking oral steroids unless there's a condition which warrants it. Ankle swelling is a symptom, not a disease.
