Decadron and High Blood Sugar

Although Decadron® (dexamethasone) can be an effective treatment for many people, this drug may not be safe in certain cases. For example, before taking Decadron, make sure your healthcare provider knows if you have diabetes.
 
If you have diabetes, your healthcare provider may recommend that you test your blood sugar levels more frequently. Decadron can cause high blood sugar levels, and your dose of diabetes medications may need to be changed.
