Chemical processes in the body

Old school In the epidermis and dermis, the main active ingredient in ointment methylprednisolone aceponate reacts with water. The main metabolite is the substance 6α-methylprednisolone-17-propionate. It has a high activity and high affinity for corticoid receptors of the skin, which indicates the presence of its bioactivation in the skin. In the blood, a fast connection of this metabolite with glucuronic acid occurs (conjugation process), after which it loses its activity.

All metabolites of methylprednisolone acepononate in the body do not accumulate - they are excreted from the body by the kidneys in about 16 hours.


Dispensed without a prescription, stored at a temperature not exceeding 25 ° C. Shelf life of ointment and cream - 3 years, oily ointment - 5 years.
