Dexamethasone steroid taper

Patients can eat and drink normally and take all their usual medications prior to the test. Estrogen containing medications, including the contraceptive pill and hormone replacement therapy, should be stopped for six weeks prior to measuring serum cortisol. This is because estrogen induces cortisol binding globulin and leads to elevations in measured serum cortisol. Any steroid containing medications should also be documented, and avoided if possible, as they may interfere with the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis, or cross react with the cortisol assay.
