Uses
Dexona (Dexamethasone) is a glucocorticoid which works by affecting how the body's immune system responds. This can have a potent anti-inflammatory affect, which makes it useful in the treatment of rheumatic diseases and various forms of arthritis. It may also relieve allergies (such as eczema and rhinitis). Its mechanism of action involves affecting the infiltration of leukocytes (white blood cells which the immune system uses to defend the body) into the site of inflammation. Doctors have also used it on patient's affected by Cushing's syndrome, to find out what is causing the symptoms (referred to as a suppression test), and some patients have been treated with it for mountain sickness.

Dosage and Administration
Dexona (Dexamethasone) is indicated for a wide range of conditions, and the required dosage regimen could differ vastly for each individual because of this. The tablets contain 0.5mg of the main ingredient. Patients with Cushing's syndrome taking it for a suppression test may be told by their doctor to administer 0.5mg at 6 hour intervals for a period of 48 hours, and urine samples will also be required by the doctor. As an alternative, they may be instructed to take 1mg at 11pm, followed by a blood plasma cortisol test the next day (at 8am).

Side effects
Dexona (Dexamethasone) can trigger side effects, including:

  • Appetite changes
  • Redness affecting the face
  • Strange deposits of body fat
  • Hair thinning on top of the head
  • Skin which is lighter in appearance

Any side effects which you experience must be reported to your doctor, as adjustments to your dosage schedule or treatment may be needed. Seek medical care immediately if you experience aggressive behaviour, feeling anxious, depression, reduced passing of urine, blurred eyesight, sore eyes or any other serious reactions that have not been listed here.

Precautions
Withdrawal symptoms may occur if treatment is abruptly withdrawn. Your doctor will provide you with expert advice on how to prevent this when stopping treatment.

Patients undergoing corticosteroid treatment for a prolonged period of time have experienced bruises on the skin, thinned skin, acne and other reactions. Ask your doctor about this before starting treatment.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Dexona (Dexamethasone) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
