Dexamethasone Medication Information

Dexamethasone is approved to treat several different conditions, including arthritis, allergies, endocrine disorders, and certain cancers. It belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids, glucocorticoids, or just steroids for short. This medicine works primarily by reducing inflammation and suppressing the immune system, which is why it is only designed for short-term use.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with dexamethasone, inform your healthcare provider about all other medications you are taking, including nonprescription products, vitamins, and herbal supplements. In addition, tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have. This will help ensure that this drug is the right one for you.
