Were you looking for information on Dexamethasone? Dexamethson is a common misspelling of dexamethasone.
Dexamethasone is a medication used to treat many different conditions, including endocrine disorders, skin conditions, and certain cancers. As a corticosteroid (often just called a "steroid"), this drug works primarily by suppressing the immune system.
It resembles a naturally occurring hormone in the human body, which is why it should only be used on a short-term basis (approximately a few weeks). Using dexamethasone for longer periods can lead to serious problems and may make you more susceptible to infections.
