Corticosteroids are the preparations in the treatment of optic neuritis at multiple sclerosis.
The doses and methods of introduction of corticosteroids are chosen individually for the adults and children.
A maximum effect is registered in a majority of cases of optic neuritis, when methylprednisolone is prescribed with the pulse-dose introduction, as compared to parabulbar injections or administration of corticosteroids per os.
The recovery of vision at relapsing optic neuritis sets on faster and is of a more prolonged nature as compared to other variants of the introduction of corticosteroids.
Therefore, the prescription of methylprednisolone as pulse-doses is more effective in both adults and children.
