I take dexamethasone before each treatment and after . I am on a rest until the 5th of December. They say I am responding well to treatment. I received flowers from a college and high-school friend. It was a wonderful gesture. Made my day.
My father use dex on 1.2.3 and 4 day and then on 12. 13.14.15. day of one ciklus. 40mg per day
After 2 treatments my doctor stopped my Dex. I was taking it Friday and Saturday after treatment on Thursday. How long have some of you been taking Dex?
Thank you for answer
Any steroid will cause high blood sugar. Dexamethasone is a steroid. Address this with his doctor. I experience high blood sugars. Mine returns to normal range after 3 days. Of course, I am on medication not insulin. Call his primary care doctor or oncologist for advice.
