Buy Calcort brand or generic Deflazacort prescription drug from Canada
Why is Calcort prescribed?
Deflazacort (Calcort) is prescribed for the management of Duchenne muscular dystrophy to improve the strength of muscles. It is also being used for the treatment of kidney problems, eye problems, asthma, arthritis and abnormal growth tumors in the body.
What does it do?
Deflazacort, classified as a corticosteroid, is being converted to its active metabolite, 21-Deflazacort, to exert its effect. It primarily works by promoting anti-inflammation and immunosuppression effects in the glucocorticoid receptor; thus, helping the body to increase resistance to autoimmune diseases and maintain healthy well-being.
How should I take it?
Calcort is currently available as a 30mg tablet that should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth with or without food.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Calcort?
Before taking Deflazacort, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history, especially if you have or have had high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver disease, fluid retention, intestinal disorder, glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes, problems in the thyroid and pituitary glands, ileostomy, colostomy and myasthenia gravis.
Consult your doctor regarding all the other medications you use before getting surgery.
