WORKING OF MEDICATION
The active ingredient in Omnicortil is prednisolone, which belongs to the class of corticosteroids. Prednisolone has a complex mechanism of action that involves multiple pathways in the body. Here is a simplified explanation of the working mechanism of Omnicortil:
- Anti-inflammatory Action: Omnicortil acts as an anti-inflammatory agent by inhibiting the production and release of various inflammatory substances in the body, such as prostaglandins and cytokines. This helps to reduce swelling, redness, and pain associated with inflammation.
- Immunosuppressive Action: Omnicortil has immunosuppressive properties, meaning it suppresses the activity of the immune system. It inhibits the production of immune cells and reduces the activity of certain immune responses. This action is helpful in conditions where the immune system is overactive and causing damage, such as autoimmune disorders.
- Metabolic Effects: Prednisolone can affect various metabolic processes in the body, including carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism. It can increase blood sugar levels, promote the breakdown of proteins, and redistribute body fat.
- Anti-allergic Action: Omnicortil also has anti-allergic effects by suppressing allergic reactions. It reduces the release of inflammatory substances involved in allergic responses, such as histamine, and decreases the activity of immune cells responsible for allergic reactions.
