[Pharmacology and toxicology]
It is a member of corticoid drugs. It has better anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and anti-shock potencies than Prednisone; the light potency to keep sodium and water retention and the excretion of potassium, and the strong inhibition to pituitary-adrenal gland.
1.Anti-inflammatory action: it can relieve and prevent from the reaction between tissue and the inflammation, thereby relieving the inflammation. The hormone can inhibit inflammatory cells, phagocytosis and other media’s synthesis and releasing.
2.Immunorepressive action: To prevent or inhibit the immunereaction of cells, and delayed allergic reaction; to decrease the number of T lymphocyte, monochromatic cell, and acidophile; to reduce the combining ability of immune globulins with cell surface, and inhibit the synthesis and releasing of interleukin(IL), thereby decreasing Tlymphocyte to transform to lymphoblasoid cell, and to relieve the enlargement of original immuneraction; to stop immune complex to pass through the basement membrane and reduce the concentration of complement components and immune globulins.
It is easily absorbed from digestive tract. T1/2 of the plasma and the tissue are respectively 190 minutes and 3 days. The combining rate of the plasma proteins is lower than other hormone drugs.
[Indications, Dosage]

So give more considerations when using the drug in pregnant women. If a nursing mother is administered to high doses, she won’t provide breast-feeding, because hormone excreted in human breast milk will inhibit the growth of infants and adrenal functions.

[Use in elder sufferers]
Easily cause hypertension and osteoporosis for the elders, especially for female after menopause.
[Interaction with other drugs, other forms of interactions]
1.Combination with barbiturates, phenytoin and rifrinmactane, the metabolism of the drug will be reduced.
2.Combination with sallicylis acid drugs, the drug’s toxicity will be increased.
3.The drug can decrease the effect of anti-coagulant and oral anti-diabetic drugs, so adjust its dosage.
