My 11 year old son was prescribed with celestone 500mcg 3x a day. we forgot to inform the doctor that he was diagnosed with G6PD. will there be any risks?
If you tell your pharmacist about your son's condition, he/she can insert that into the computer and it will flag any medications that are contraindicated. I do not see that medication on the prohibited list. to view the list of medications, go to g6pd.org, it's out of Italy where they discovered G6PD deficiency and are very up to date on it, probably more than any other place in the world, in fact, Sicily just got approved for every citizen to be tested FREE. My family is from Sicily, which is how I inherited it. If you have any further questions on it, I can probably help. the national institutes of health has recently put out a publication on anemias and speaks on G6PD deficiency.
