About Succinex-M 40 mg Injection

Succinex-M 40 mg Injection belongs to the corticosteroid drug class. It is used to treat symptoms associated with allergic reactions or inflammatory conditions. Succinex-M 40 mg Injection is primarily used to treat arthritis, tennis elbow, and golfer's elbow, which cause swelling and pain in the joints and tendons. It is also useful in treating severe allergic reactions, asthma, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease (inflammatory bowel disease).

Succinex-M 40 mg Injection contains methylprednisolone, a corticosteroid medicine. It works by suppressing the migration of certain chemical messengers in the body that cause inflammation and allergic conditions; thus, it effectively treats various medical conditions associated with allergies and inflammation.

Succinex-M 40 mg Injection is administered by a doctor in a hospital setting. Do not self-administer. It shows side effects like depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, sleeping disorders, difficulty in thinking or being confused, memory loss, hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that do not exist), and feeling high (mania) or mood swings. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if any of these side effects are persistent, consult your doctor.

Inform your doctor before receiving Succinex-M 40 mg Injection if you are allergic to corticosteroids or methylprednisolone, if you just had a vaccination or have a vaccination planned, or if you have a viral infection such as measles or chickenpox, shingles, or any other medical condition. Stay away from people who have chickenpox or shingles. Consult your doctor immediately if you come into contact with chickenpox or shingles patients. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding and suspect pregnancy or planning pregnancy, inform your doctor before receiving this medicine. Succinex-M 40 mg Injection is generally not recommended for use in children as it may delay growth and development and cause severe headaches with blurred vision or temporary visual problems in children. Your paediatrician may weigh the benefits and risks before prescribing this medicine to your child.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Allergy: Allergy is an immune system response to foreign elements typically not harmful to your body. These foreign elements are known as 'allergens'. Allergic condition varies from person to person. Some might be allergic to certain foods and seasonal allergies like hay fever. While others might be allergic to pollen or pet dander. One of the symptoms of allergy is cough. Coughing occurs as a reflex action in the throat when mucus or any other foreign irritant is in it.

Inflammation: It is a response generated by damage to living tissues. This response is a defence mechanism to protect the body from injury, infection, or disease. The symptoms of inflammation include redness, pain, swelling, heat, or loss of function. Inflammation can be caused due to certain medications, acute and chronic conditions, exposure to foreign materials or irritants your body can’t eliminate easily.
