Were you looking for information on Dexamethasone? Dextramethasone is a common misspelling of dexamethasone.
Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid often prescribed to treat conditions that affect the immune system, such as endocrine disorders, allergic conditions, and rheumatic diseases. It resembles a naturally occurring hormone in the human body. Long-term use will cause the body to stop producing less of this hormone, which can lead to problems, so dexamethasone is typically only used for a few weeks.
Although most people have no problems with this product, side effects are possible. Commonly reported reactions include nausea, dizziness, and headaches. Fortunately, such problems are usually mild and easily treated.
