Remarks

A corticosteroid with both glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid activity. The name given to cortisol when used as a pharmaceutical, applied to both the natural hormone and the same substance produced synthetically; it has life-maintaining and blood pressure-sustaining properties and also has limited mineralocorticoid activity. The official preparation and its salts are used in the treatment of inflammations, allergies, pruritus, collagen diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus, some neoplasms, acute or chronic adrenocortical insufficiency, severe status asthmaticus, and shock.
