Hi Harbakash
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Defcort is a steroid and it has its own side effects.At this point , you should consider the importance of taking it rather than the side effects.You can go ahead and take the drug.
Defcort can have side effects like weight gain , buffalo hump , decreased immunity over long time.
If you have any signs of side effects you should approach your Doctor in early stages to avoid complications.
Take care
