Methylprednisolone is a steroid, which becomes Prednisolone, the active substance and derivative of Prednisone. It is not a Beta 2 agonist, and not technically a bronchodilator either. But in treatment of Asthma, steroids are used, so this bids the question why.
In the example asthma, we have two types of medications used, nicknamed "controllers" and "relievers". The relievers will be your B2 agonists, which act directly on smooth muscle, dilating the airways. But this is all fine and dandy until inflammation kicks in. Inflammation, with it's cytokines, will cause vasodilation, capillary leakage, oedema and fibrosis of the airways. This is where the controllers come in, and what are the controllers? You guessed it, steroids. Steroids inhibit inflammation, stops the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines and in some instances halt the activation of mast cells. Back to your question; Beta 2 agonist? No. Bronchodilator? Technically no, but it inhibits the process that would lead to bronchoconstriction, so it is an Indirect bronchodilator.
I hope that made it clear, have a good one!
Hello! I'm conducting a research paper regarding Eastern and Western medicine, and it would be really helpful if you guys could take my quick, 10 question survey! Thank you!
Nice video I like it, particularly the ideas about drugs for asthma treatment
. Another resource I also found useful for skin asthma treatment
is Renkarter Amazing Asthma Report - it should be on google if you need it
+tori smeaton Hi everyone, if anyone else wants to uncover medication for asthma try Grathaw asthma treatment expert (just google it ) ? I've heard some extraordinary things about it and my brother in law got excellent success with it.
Hey Mike! Quick question: Im a bit confused on the leukotrienes. If they are the blood cells that produce the PG, wouldn't they CAUSE inflammation and not help get rid of it if we're giving the patient leukotrienes? +Michael Linares
we don't give patients leukotrienes. we give them leukotriene antagonists, inhibit leukotrienes. I HAVEN'T WATCHED THE VIDEO AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HE SAID BUT I'M A MD STUDENT AND HAVE ALREADY STUDIED THESE DRUGS.

Hi Michael, I'm a nursing professor, and over all these are excellent. Just wanted to point out in your "B-terol" you solu-medrol, this is not the same category of drug as albuterol, solumedrol is methylprednisolone a corticosteriod or a SLAM drug.
I can't believe that i just found out about your videos not long ago.....i needed you two years ago when i first started...it would of made my life much easier!!!! Thanks for the vidz, they're a big help.
what is that Pharm boot camp ? is that something available to see/ get? i really need help with understanding drugs!:) Also, do you have anything or planning to record about math and donation? seems to me very hard and complicated :(. Thank you! Of course, i am not requesting, just asking..
Michael! i am an international nursing student, finished my medical nursing school in Russia 11 years ago and now it is soooo hard for me to prepare for nclex, but i am trying hard and just found one of your EKG video. It is soooo helpful! EKG is something so hard to understand and visualize. Thank you SO MUCH! i hope i will find more videos to watch! and classes to take from you! I am also bad in pharmacology.
Sure, I am making the Ultimate Pharm Boot Camp - all drugs for every body system explained clearly. Which GI meds are you referring to? Antiemetics? Like zophran, compazine, & reglan?
Or GI antibiotics like Flagyl?
Please let me know so I can help :)
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
