Drug Therapy


    sodium phenytoin (Dilantin, Dephenylhydantoin)

    Extreme care should be used when using steroids.

    Steroids might contribute to the incidence of seizures. Clinically applied glucocorticoid type of drugs include: cortisone, hydrocortisone, prednisone, betamethasone (Celestone), clobetasol propionate, dexamethasone, fludrocortisone (Florinef), etc.

     Effects of glucocorticoid on central nervous system: glucocorticoid can lower the concentration of gama aminobutyric acid (gaba), enhance the excitement of the CNS and cause amnesia, blissfulness, hallucination, and even psychic derangement. It can lower the threshold of the excitement of the brain and promote seizures.
