Natural progesterone may be a more effective treatment. In a study of 25 women with catamenial exacerbation of complex partial seizures of temporal lobe origin, 72% of the women improved. The average decline in seizure frequency was 55%. Of the 25 women in the study, 14 had anovulatory cycles or an inadequate luteal phase. These women took progesterone lozenges (200 mg tid) on days 15 through 25 of each menstrual cycle, with taper over days 26 through 28. The 11 women with normal cycles and perimenstrual seizure exacerbation took the same type and dose of progesterone on days 23 through 25 of each menstrual cycle.

Background: The most recent surviving sepsis campaign recommends the use of hydrocortisone in patients with refractory septic shock (. vasopressor dependent).  However, the use of hydrocortisone in severe sepsis without shock still remains a very controversial topic. Recommendations for hydrocortisone are mostly based on 2 randomized clinical trials (. Annane et al [2] and CORTICUS [3]), but subsequent meta-analyses had more mixed results.  Shock reversal was consistently improved irrespective of disease severity; however, mortality outcomes were not as consistent.  Therefore, it has been hypothesized that early hydrocortisone administration could prevent shock by attenuating patient’s inflammatory response.

Glucocorticoids are potent anti-inflammatories, regardless of the inflammation's cause; their primary anti-inflammatory mechanism is lipocortin-1 (annexin-1) synthesis. Lipocortin-1 both suppresses phospholipase A2 , thereby blocking eicosanoid production, and inhibits various leukocyte inflammatory events ( epithelial adhesion , emigration , chemotaxis , phagocytosis , respiratory burst , etc.). In other words, glucocorticoids not only suppress immune response, but also inhibit the two main products of inflammation, prostaglandins and leukotrienes . They inhibit prostaglandin synthesis at the level of phospholipase A2 as well as at the level of cyclooxygenase /PGE isomerase (COX-1 and COX-2), [29] the latter effect being much like that of NSAIDs , potentiating the anti-inflammatory effect.
