Solu-medrone 40mg: do not use in cows' milk allergy

25th October 2017

Solu-Medrone 40mg (methylprednisolone injection) uses lactose produced from cows’ milk as an excipient and may contain trace amounts of milk proteins. It should not be used in patients with a known or suspected allergy to cows’ milk, as serious allergic reactions have been reported.

Other strengths of Solu-Medrone do not contain lactose. Lactose-containing methylprednisolone medicines will be reformulated to remove any trace of milk proteins. Companies have been asked to take steps towards lactose-free formulations by 2019.
