Glucocorticoid Vs Corticosteroid
Low risk: Infrequent corticosteroid injections are quite safe. Infrequent injections will not cause significant growth effects in children or contribute to decreased bone mass or immune function or increase the risk of weight gain or cataracts. A one in a million risk is hip or knee joint damage. The watch word here is infrequent. ...Read more
Not Fair Question: Everybody's genetics are different, so response to steroids between everybody is different. There are charts to show potency on each individual steroid. The most important thing is to find the right medical therapy to get your asthma under control...Not the low dose of inhaled corticosteroid or the type used. Oral steroids are much more dangerous with higher side effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Which is the better steroid replacement, prednidone or cortef (hydrocortisone)? For secondary adrenal insufficiency.
I like Cortef (hydrocortisone) best: For adults it's a personal preference, but Hydrocortisone (cortef (hydrocortisone)) gives more physiologic steroid hormone replacement. Doses much easier to adjust, though trade-off is taking 3 times/day because 1/2 life is shorter than prednisone. Prednisone is much stronger than Hydrocortisone so it's easier to get cushingoid taking it, especially because dose can't be manipulated as finely as with cortef (hydrocortisone). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is the difference btw using celestone (betamethasone) or depot Medrol (methylprednisolone) for epidural steroid injections?
Chemical Structure: Among physiatrists, anesthesiologist and other pain physicians, both of these steroids have a unique, and sometimes, interchangeable place in pain blocks depending on anatomical considerations (lumbar, cervical, transforaminal, etc.). Ask your physician what he/she is comfortable using, and why....They'll love the question! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Atrophy, striae: Applying a strong steroid cream for too long on thin skin (face, groin, underarms, etc.) will eventually cause thinning of the skin (atrophy) and eventually stretch marks (striae). That's why dermatologists cringe when they see strong steroids prescribed for areas that are too sensitive to handle them properly. Strong creams should be used only on thick skin for a couple of weeks at most. ...Read more
