Feedback:
Intermediate-acting glucocorticoids are the drugs of choice for alternate-day therapy and will decrease the susceptibility of infection. Alternative-day therapy will not protect from hyperglycemia. Alternate-day therapy will not affect blood pressure. Alternate-day therapy is not used as a strategy for improving adherence.
