Deflazacort is commonly used in the treatment of rheumatoid, arthritis, auto-immune disease, and other illnesses. The active ingredient falls under the class of drugs called corticosteroids (steroids). They block the release of certain chemicals in the body which are responsible for inflammation. The steroid shoots up the level of glucocorticoid in the body and works by reducing the formation of substances that cause inflammation and suppresses immunity to stop self-destructing the body’s immune system (auto-immune reactions occurring in organ transplants or cancer). Thus, deflazacort is useful in the treatment of many diseases. The tablets can be taken after meals or on empty stomach. Deflazacort should be swallowed whole with water. It shouldn’t be chewed or crushed. The dosage should be prescribed by your doctor.
