A group of CORTICOSTEROIDS that affect carbohydrate metabolism (GLUCONEOGENESIS, liver glycogen deposition, elevation of BLOOD SUGAR), inhibit ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE secretion, and possess pronounced anti-inflammatory activity. They also play a role in fat and protein metabolism, maintenance of arterial blood pressure, alteration of the connective tissue response to injury, reduction in the number of circulating lymphocytes, and functioning of the central nervous system.

ATC Classification
DrugDrug Description
ParamethasoneFor the treatment of all conditions in which corticosteroid therapy is indicated except adrenal-deficiency states for which its lack of sodium-retaining properties makes it less suitable than hydrocortisone with supplementary...

Prednisone acetateNot Annotated
Clocortolone acetateNot Annotated
Melengestrol acetateA 6-methyl progesterone acetate with reported glucocorticoid activity and effect on estrus.
Betamethasone phosphateA fast acting ester prodrug of a corticosteroid used to treat inflammatory conditions.
CortisoneA naturally occurring glucocorticoid. It has been used in replacement therapy for adrenal insufficiency and as an anti-inflammatory agent. Cortisone itself is inactive. It is converted in the liver to...
HalometasoneA corticosteroid indicated in the treatment of corticosteroid responsive dermatoses.
