I understand that there are several steroids given as a systemic treatment in various doses and at various day times (morning or evening) adjusted by patient situation(1).

For example:

  • Prednisone
  • Prednisolone
  • Methylprednisolone
  • Beclomethasone
  • Betamethasone
  • Dexamethasone
  • Hydrocortisone
  • Triamcinolone

According to this article one might think that Hydrocortisone is at least a "weak" one(2).

But is there a "weakest" steroid among these (or another)?
Weakest by any mean; challenges in blood stream, low receptor affinity or anything else.
