I came across two articles that had a lot of information about steroid use, including dose equivalents, drug interactions and potential for adrenal suppression.
One of the sources (Primary Care Medicine: Office Evaluation and Management of the Adult Patient, 6th Edition Chapter 105, Glucocorticoid Therapy) can be found at http://www.dermaamin.com/site/images...sid621819.html.
For the other source (Chapter 14-Glucocorticoid Therapy and Adrenal Suppression, Authors: Aikaterini N. Pavlake, Maria Alexandra Magiakou, George Pl Chrousos, University of Athens Medical School, Athens, Greece) I could not successfully copy the web address. To access this article, you need to put the title and authors' names in the Google search box.
Both of these sources are written for physicians and so the terminology tends to be technical. However, as hard as some of it might be to read, I think it's worth the effort. Anyone who is taking steroids would probably find these two sources very helpful.
