If you look it up, there supposedly is no difference. I've never taken Medrol for the UC, but did take it for reactive asthma. It didn't help, so my doctor put me on Pred which did help. It was more than six years ago, so I don't remember the dosages, but suspect the Pred worked because it was a higher dose.
Medrol and Pred have identical effects and side effects.
