What is Cort-S?
Cort-S (Hydrocortisone) is an injectable corticosteroid used to treat severe inflammatory conditions, rheumatoid arthritis or severe allergic reactions. It reduces inflammation in the body to relieve swelling or itching affecting the joints or other areas affected by your particular condition. Your physician may prescribe this medication for other unlisted purposes, as well.

How is Cort-S used?
Strictly follow all instructions provided to you by your physician or pharmacist while using Cort-S (Hydrocortisone). Optimum and safe dosage can differ based on the patient and the condition being treated.

Cort-S (Hydrocortisone) should always be injected by your physician or a trained healthcare professional to prevent serious complications from occurring. The correct dosage and frequency of administration will depend on your weight, the condition being treated, your current health, and the severity of your symptoms.

Always observe the solution before use to make sure it is not cloudy or discolored as this may indicate contamination. Ask your physician or pharmacist any questions you have about the medicine to make sure you are using it correctly.

Adverse effects
Cort-S (Hydrocortisone) may cause side effects in some patients such as:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Upset stomach, diarrhea, or constipation
  • Unusual weight gain
  • Sore or weak muscles
  • Patches appearing in or around the mouth
  • Disturbed menstrual cycles

Inform your physician as soon as you experience any intense or worrying side effects to make sure the correct alterations are made to your dosage or application frequency to prevent more problems from occurring.

Do not use Cort-S if you have a widespread infection, infected joints, tendons, soft tissues, or if the injection is to be performed in the spinal joints.

Inform your physician if you are elderly, if the patient being treated is a child, or if you have a history of tuberculosis, peptic ulcer, osteoporosis, severe mental illness, glaucoma, diabetes, hypertension, or if you are a woman who has gone through menopause.

Always inform your physician if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as well as if you have any allergies, other illnesses, or ongoing health conditions, and if you are taking any other form of medication, supplements, or herbal products.

Immediately seek emergency medical care if you have an allergic or hypersensitive reaction. Common signs of a reaction include hives, swelling, skin rashes, chest pains, as well as trouble breathing or swallowing.
