More sensitive to develop skin atrophy, osteoporosis). Depending on the risk taken by an individual patient, monitoring of side effect induction should be initiated in parallel with the start of therapy. The risk of developing systemic side effects is much higher for systemic GC therapy then for topical, including inhaled therapy. Nevertheless, for inhaled GC therapy, as for any other therapy, a risk/benefit decision has to be made by the physician and the patient. g. long-acting ß2-agonists, theophyllines, leukotriene antagonists) instead of increasing GC dosage, and by minimizing systemic availability of the GC as well as local side effects through careful selection of the inhalation device as well as proper technique.

GC-induced psychotic and mood disorders GCs can induce psychiatric syndromes, including depression, mania, psychosis and delirium, which are often subsumed as “steroid psychosis” representing an exogenous psychiatric disorder. However, steroid psychosis is not a specific clinical entity but consists of heterogeneous syndromes with likely different pathophysiological mechanisms. Moreover, GCs induce mood disorders in a higher frequency than psychoses. , 2001). , 2001).
