Prescribing and Treatment Info for Decadron

When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Decadron include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in many different forms. The individual instructions for use will depend on the form you take. Make sure to refer to the directions for your particular product.
 
  • Do not suddenly stop taking this medication. If you have been using Decadron for a long time, your healthcare provider will need to slowly reduce your dose to allow your body to adjust to not having the medication.
 
  • When taking Decadron by mouth, take it with food to help prevent stomach upset.
 
  • If you are taking Decadron once a day, take it in the morning. Later doses can make it difficult to sleep.
 
  • Try to take this medication at the same time each day to keep an even level of it in your bloodstream.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
 

Dosing Information

The dose of Decadron your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The particular product being used
  • Your age
  • Your weight (in children)
  • The type and severity of the condition being treated
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
 
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
