Were you looking for information on Dexamethasone? Dexamethsone is a common misspelling of dexamethasone.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved dexamethasone for the treatment of many different conditions, such as:
- Asthma, dermatitis, allergic reactions, and other allergic conditions
- Mycosis fungoides (a rare type of skin lymphoma, or tumor of the blood), psoriasis, pemphigus (an autoimmune disease that causes blisters of the skin and mucous membranes), and other skin conditions
- Adrenal insufficiency, high blood calcium (hypercalcemia) from cancer, and other endocrine disorders.
The form your healthcare provider prescribes will depend on the condition being treated, your age, and weight (for children), among other things. Do not abruptly stop taking this drug -- serious side effects may result.
