Defcort 6 MG Tablet Side Effect

I have been diagnosed with aosd (adults onset stills disease) last year September. It is rare type of rheumatic arthritis. Presently, I am on defcort 6 mg and methotrexate 20 mg. My recent blood report shows esr - 45, crp - 24 and ggtp - 84. I am also not having periods since december 2020 due to steroids intake. I am also a patient of depression since 2015 and take nexito of the when things go out of control. Will ayurveda cure me completely?

Like all autoimmune diseases, aosd has no permanent cure. However, with proper treatment it can definitely be managed such that you can lead a normal life. If left untreated, it can lead to permanent joint damage, and sometimes life threatening complications like mas or myocarditis. I strongly suggest that you consult with a rheumatologist for further management. Stopping steroids suddenly may be dangerous.

I have a 3.5 mm right side mid calyx kidney stone and I am suffering from right side pain. The urologist yesterday prescribed me stone 1b6 syrup, nafodil 50 tablet (naftopidil 50) and deflazacort 6 mg tablet. I just found out that deflazacort 6 mg is a steroid and it affects the immunity. I am worried my immunity might get decreased and I have not taken covid vaccine till now. Also I read steroids should not be taken by a person who is planning to take a vaccine. So kindly please advise what to do? Shall I take deflazacort 6 mg or not?

I will personally suggest not to take deflazacort beacuse you seem to much worried about low dose weak steroid but for that I need to see your detail sonography report why you are prescribed steroid at all please contact for further query.

Mr. lybrate-user, daily consumption of defcort is injurious to health. It has not of side effects. More over copd is less likely to respond to steroids. U need to be started on inhalers.

Hello lybrate-user I understand that your mother is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and has been put on drug treatment. However you have not mentioned how long has she been taking treatment because the effect of medicines comes on at an average of 6 weeks of regular treatment. If she has been taking the above mentioned medicines since jan 2020 regularly then she needs an urgent review for the drugs need to be changed or dose adjusted as per the case. And if the treatment has been started recently then I would say give it some more time.

There are certain allergens in your environment or in your food which need to be identified and you should avoid contact with them. Medicines you mentioned are prescribed to reduce effects of antigen antibody reaction which releases certain histamine and related substances which cause symptoms.

Apart from the medications (dmard) for ra you require 1. Good pain relief a) in the form of medications used judiciously without causing much liver or kidney side effects b) in the form. Of physical modalities 2 you also need physiotherapy to prevent joint contractures and muscle wasting and deformities 3 appropriate use of splints will prevent contractures and deformities and subluxation. The main idea is to prevent any permanent damage to the joints during the time of relapse. Please consult a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist near your area for advice.

My husband is suffering from asthma for a month. He has been a heavy smoker for 3 decades. What can be his treatment? He has seen a doctor who advised to take salbair, odimont, defcort, azifine and budamate. Is there any medication without serious side effects and steroids?

He appears to be suffering from copd rather than asthma smoking to be given up other drugs such as roflumilast deriphyllin bambuterol news inhalers with tiotropium or glycopyrronium may be considered by your pulmonologist.

It is good if you have used combination of deflazacort and tamsulosin. This is best for expulsion of stone but if still it has not come out and is giving you problem then better'to get it removed endoscopically by a urologist.
