Determine equivalent dosage of corticosteroid
The corticosteroid equivalence calculations are based on old studies comparing the degree of ACTH suppression following a single dose of corticosteroid. The degree of suppression depends on the dose of steroid given as well as the timing of that dose in relation to the drug's half-life. These calculations may not be accurate following repeated doses of steroid.
