In supportive therapy in severe acute infections in combination with specific targeted bactericidal antimicrobial treatment, the length of the corticosteroid treatment in this indication should generally be limited to a few days. The anti-inflammatory treatment inhibits the immune system and promotes the spread of infectious organisms throughout the body, which can lead to a fulminant infection. At the same time, corticosteroids suppress the fever (signaling function) if this infection becomes systemic. Initial administration of corticosteroids may be beneficial in suppressing the acute symptoms of the disease process.
Co-administration of barbiturates, phenylbutazone, phenytoin or rifampicin may increase the metabolism of the corticosteroids and reduce their effect. The response to anti-coagulants can be reduced by corticosteroids. Combination of glucocorticoids with salicylates and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents increases the risk of gastrointestinal complications. Combination of glucocorticoids with thiazide diuretics increases the risk of glucose intolerance.
