In brief: Methylprednisolone

Medrol (methylprednisolone) or Methylprednisolone is a steroid.
It will help with inflammation for a variety of conditions. There are a lot of side effects and precautions. It helps decrease swelling. It will suppress the immune system. I have rereviewed the precautions for this drug and I am unable to find any concerns regarding sun exposure or tanning beds. That isn't 100%, but it would suggest that it is rare.
