Deflazit 24 Tablet

Adults: Usual maintenance 3-18 mg daily (acute disorders, initially up to 120 mg daily).

Child: 0.25-1.5 mg/kg daily (or on alternate days).

When Deflazacort is used for long term, the maintenance dose should be kept as low as possible. Dosage may need to be increased during exacerbation of illness. It should not stop taking this medicine suddenly if it has been taking for more than three weeks. This is because long-term use of corticosteroids can suppress the natural production of corticosteroids by the adrenal glands, which means that the body becomes temporarily reliant on the medicine. When it is time to stop treatment the dose should be tapered down gradually, to allow the adrenal glands to start producing adequate amounts of natural steroids again.

Hepatic Impairment: In patients with hepatic impairment, blood levels of Deflazacort may be increased. Therefore the dose of Deflazacort should be carefully monitored and adjusted to the minimum effective dose.

Renal Impairment: In renally impaired patients, no special precautions other than those usually adopted in patients receiving glucocorticoid therapy are necessary.

Elderly: In elderly patients, no special precautions other than those usually adopted in patients receiving glucocorticoid therapy are necessary.
