  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Concurrent use of barbiturates, carbamazepine, phenytoin, primidone, or rifampicin may enhance the metabolism and reduce the effects of systemic corticosteroids. Conversely oral contraceptives or ritonavir may increase plasma concentrations of corticosteroids. Use of corticosteroids with potassium-depleting diuretics, such as thiazides or furosemide, may cause excessive potassium loss. There is also an increased risk of hypokalaemia with concurrent amphotericin B or bronchodilator therapy with xanthines or beta2 agonists. There may be an increased incidence of gastrointestinal bleeding and ulceration when corticosteroids are given with NSAIDs. Response to anticoagulants may be altered by corticosteroids and requirements of antidiabetic drugs and antihypertensives may be increased. Corticosteroids may decrease serum concentrations of salicylates and may decrease the effect of anticholinesterases in myasthenia gravis.,
