Drug Uses Deltasone is used to reduce inflammation and reduce the symptoms in conditions like ulcerative colitis, psoriasis and Crohns disease. It may also be used in other cases as you doctor deems fit. Usage Following the dosage instructions of your doctor is the best way to use any medication. If you are unsure or do not remember the instructions then you may read the medicine label for more detailed information. You may choose to take Deltasone with a meal to avoid an upset stomach. It is very important that you complete the dosage schedule and do not interrupt it in between without seeking prior consultation from your doctor. Missed Dose Despite your best attempts at remembering, if you still miss out on a dose, then take it as soon as you remember about it. But keep in mind that you will have to adjust your next dose by spacing it out by 4 to 5 hours. If this is not possible, then the best thing to do would be to skip the missed dose and continue with your normal dosage schedule. Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects. Storage Store Deltasone at room temperature. Always keep it in a cool dark place that is not directly exposed to sources of moisture. Overdose An overdose of Deltasone may have adverse effects that require immediate medical attention. Contact the nearest emergency poison control center immediately if you notice effects like obesity (especially around the stomach), a round face, swollen hands and feet due to fluid retention and increased blood pressure.
