As I am suffering with sarcodiasis of lymph node (lungs), I was prescribed defcort 30 mg two times daily (60mg per day) for a period of 45 days and a lower dosage afterwards for another 45 days. Now I completed 30 days of treatment. Can you tell me if there will be any side effects and if so, what precautions I should take?

From what I can find, it appears Defcort contains the glucocortoid Deflazacort, it is used to as an anti-inflammatory and immuno-suppressant.

Common side effects to these types of steroids can include: nausea, drowsiness, immunosuppression and weight gain.


Is there anything else I can help you with?

I was given steriods (defcort 18) once a day & Alerid D twice a day for a total of seven days as my nose was blocked due to allergies, but in two days of consumption of these drugs.. my BP shot up to 110 & 180. I stopped taking those drugs in two days.. but still after 3 months im feeling nausea, drowsiness & tension like problems. My age is 28. Please tell me a solution to get rid of these unwanted problems & also guide me on how much time it will take to clean it from my body. my blood Gp is B+

My wife has been suffering from I L D for the last 6 years. She has been taking 10mg wysolen every day for the last 2 years. Can we substitute 10mg wysolen with 10mg defcort? We understand that defcort has fever listed as a side effect.
