  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Plasma-salicylate concentrations may be reduced by corticosteroids. Rifampicin reduces the activity of corticosteroids by accelerating their metabolism, and a similar effect would be expected with other rifamycins. Reduced efficacy of corticosteroids has been noted in asthmatic, arthritic, renal transplant, and other patients who also received phenytoin or phenobarbital, and the clearance of corticosteroids has also been reported to be markedly increased by carbamazepine. corticosteroids or corticotropin either enhancing or diminishing the effects of anticoagulants. Mutual inhibition of metabolism occurs between cyclosporin and corticosteroids, and may increase the plasma concentrations of either drug. There was a report of an appreciable and consistent increase in plasma corticosteroids after cigarette smoking. use of corticosteroids with beta2 agonists may potentiate any hypokalaemic effects.,
