Solu-Medrol is a high dose of corticosteroids given by intravenous (IV) infusion in an inpatient or outpatient setting. This drug is not currently patented, so multiple brands (including generic brands) are available and these do not offer patient-assistance programs. Individuals will need to check with their insurance provider regarding coverage in an inpatient or outpatient setting. Uninsured individuals should check with the facility providing the infusion to see if it offers a financial-assistance program.
*Sometimes it may be decided that pulse steroids or an oral taper of steroids are needed after an initial dose of IV Solu-Medrol.
