  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    Deflazacort is a steroid . It mainly acts as an anti inflammatory and as an immuno suppressant drug.This drug is given for rheumatoid arthritis but it does not hinder in conceiving. But once u conceive u have to consult ur doctor for dose modification as this medicine can affect baby growth.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
