Comments:
-Exogenous corticosteroids suppress adrenocorticoid activity least when given at the time of maximal activity; consider time of maximal adrenal cortex activity (2 AM to 8 AM) when dosing.
-Controlled clinical trials have shown corticosteroids to be effective in speeding the resolution of acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis, although they have not been shown to affect the natural history of the disease.
