Drug-induced adrenal insufficiency


Prevention

To reduce the risk of developing this condition:

  • Use glucocorticoids for the shortest time possible, in the smallest dose possible
  • Take steroids every other day, instead of daily
  • Use steroid-sparing agents (for the treatment of asthma or arthritis, for example)

People who use inhaled steroids can reduce their exposure by using a spacer, and by rinsing out their mouth after inhaling the medication.
