IV steroids, such as methylprednisolone, are administered for the reduction of inflammation. IV steroids are used for treating conditions like arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and skin, blood, kidney, eye, thyroid and intestinal disorders. Patients who experience multiple sclerosis relapses are administered medications such as Solu-Medrol and Decadron intravenously. IV steroids can be given daily with the treatment lasting about an hour.
