Drug Info for dexamethasone

Dexamethasone, a corticosteroid, is similar to a natural hormone produced by your adrenal glands. It often is used to replace this chemical when your body does not make enough of it. It relieves inflammation (swelling, heat, redness, and pain) and is used to treat certain forms of arthritis; skin, blood, kidney, eye, thyroid, and intestinal disorders (e.g., colitis); severe allergies; and asthma. Dexamethasone is also used to treat certain types of cancer. This medication is sometimes prescribed for other uses; ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.

Dexamethasone is available in an injectable solution and is used to treat many different inflammatory disorders such as Addison's Disease, Adrenal Insufficiency, Adrenocortical Insufficiency and others. You should not use Dexamethasone if you have a fungal infection anywhere in your body.
