Dexasone Precautions

There may be an interaction between Dexasone (Dexamethasone) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Dexasone (Dexamethasone). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Dexasone Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Dexasone (Dexamethasone).

General precautions: Advise all doctors involved in your care that you have been using Dexasone (Dexamethasone).

Diabetes: Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may cause an increase in blood sugar levels and glucose tolerance may change. People with diabetes may find it necessary to monitor their blood sugar more frequently while using Dexasone (Dexamethasone).

People with diabetes or those at risk for developing diabetes should discuss with their doctor how Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may affect their medical condition, how their medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexasone (Dexamethasone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Eye Problems: Like other corticosteroids, the use of Dexasone (Dexamethasone) for a long period of time may cause Cataracts and Glaucoma or cause glaucoma to worsen. Damage to the optic nerves is possible. People with glaucoma or those at risk for developing glaucoma should discuss with their doctor how Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may affect their medical condition, how their medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexasone (Dexamethasone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you notice any changes to your vision, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Fertility: Steroids such as Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may increase or decrease the quality and quantity of sperm production.

Fluid and electrolyte balance: Average and large doses of corticosteroids, including Dexasone (Dexamethasone), can cause increases in blood pressure, salt and water retention, and excretion of potassium. Dietary salt restriction and potassium supplementation may be necessary (ask your doctor). If you notice Dry Mouth, thirst, weakness, fatigue, muscle pain and cramps, fast heartbeat, or decreased urination, see your doctor.

Gastrointestinal problems: As with other corticosteroids, Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may cause stomach ulcers to worsen or develop. If you have a history of digestive system problems, such as Ulcerative Colitis, stomach ulcers, and Diverticulitis, discuss with your doctor how Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexasone (Dexamethasone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Infection: Dexasone (Dexamethasone) can reduce your body's ability to fight infections and may hide signs of infection that is developing. Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may also worsen internal fungal infections. If you experience signs of infection such as sore throat, fever, sneezing, or coughing, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Kidney Disease: Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may not leave the body at the expected rate in cases where the kidney is not working properly. If you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexasone (Dexamethasone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver: Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may not leave the body at the expected rate in cases where the liver is not working properly. If you have reduced liver function or liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexasone (Dexamethasone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Mood changes: Corticosteroids have been known to cause mood swings and symptoms of depression. People with depression or a history of depression should discuss with their doctor how Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may affect their medical condition, how their medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexasone (Dexamethasone), and whether any special monitoring is needed. If you experience symptoms of depression such as poor concentration, changes in weight, changes in sleep, decreased interest in activities, or notice them in a family member who is taking Dexasone (Dexamethasone) contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Myasthenia Gravis: Myasthenia gravis is a condition that causes specific muscle weakness. Dexasone (Dexamethasone) can cause muscle wasting, decreasing muscle. If you have myasthenia gravis, discuss with your doctor how Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dexasone (Dexamethasone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Osteoporosis: Long-term use of corticosteroids such as Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may result in bones losing thickness, causing them to be at increased risk for fracture. If you take corticosteroid medications on a continuous basis, speak to your doctor about your particular risk for osteoporosis.

Stress: People taking Dexasone (Dexamethasone) who are subjected to any unusual stress should increase the dosage of medication before, during, and after the stressful situation as prescribed by their doctor.

Withdrawal: After using Dexasone (Dexamethasone) for a long time, stopping Dexasone (Dexamethasone) may result in symptoms of withdrawal including fever, muscle and joint pain, and malaise. When stopping Dexasone (Dexamethasone) after having used it for a prolonged period, reduce the dose slowly as prescribed by your doctor.

Pregnancy: Dexasone (Dexamethasone) should not be taken during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Dexasone (Dexamethasone), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Dexasone (Dexamethasone) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Dexasone (Dexamethasone), it may interfere with your child's own corticosteroid production, slow growth, or cause other unwanted effects for the baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: Children may be more likely to experience the side effects encountered by using this class of medication for long periods of time (e.g., slowing down of growth, delayed weight gain). The use of Dexasone (Dexamethasone) by children should be limited to the smallest dose that will be effective. Discuss with your doctor the risks and benefits of the use of Dexasone (Dexamethasone) by children.
