    Yes, it is the same. Solu-Medrol is a brand name for methylpredisolone.

    bryon, you should have received Solumedrol (methylprednisolone) 30 mg/kg bolus followed by 5.4 mg/kg/hour for 23 hours. That is the standard recommended protocol for those people who can be treated within 3 hours after injury. For those who are treated between 3-8 hours after injury, they should receive the same initial dose followeding by 47 hours of the 5.4 mg/kg/hour. For people who cannot be treated within 8 hours after injury, the drug should not be given.
