I am a reumatoid patient for past 5 yrs I was using predmet so far. Now my doctor has changed it to DEFCORT 3 mg What does that indicate is my disease worsened
Hi,thank you for the interest you are showing to HCM.It is said that you are a rheumatoid patient andyou are on predmet.Prednisolone is a corticosteroid drug and if used for a prolonged period may cause toxic effects like diabetes mellitus,hypertension,osteoporosis,cushingoid syndrome etc.,and hence to lessen the bad effects the drug might have been changed to Deflazacort as it is less toxic.
