Methylprednisolone sodium succinate has the same metabolic and anti-inflammatory actions as methylprednisolone. When given parenterally and in equimolar quantities, the two compounds are equivalent in biologic activity.

This is in good agreement with the relative oral potency of methylprednisolone and hydrocortisone.
