Solu-Cortef (Hydrocortisone Sodium Succinate)

An injection of Solu-Cortef is usually administered into a vein or a muscle or as an intravenous drip by a healthcare professional in a hospital setting for quickly relieving inflammation from asthma, skin conditions, to stimulate appetite in cancer patients, or for treating or preventing allergic symptoms or reactions like anaphylaxis, to help replace your natural steroids if your adrenal glands are not working properly, and for autoimmune diseases when organs or connective tissues are under attack.

Before Solu-Cortef is Administered

If you are able, tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding before you are given the Solu-Cortef injection. Advise the attending doctor/nurse of other medical conditions or allergies you have, and provide information about any over the counter and prescription drugs you currently take or use, including herbal, vitamin, or dietary supplements. This will help your doctor determine if Solu-Cortef is the right treatment for you.
