decadron
My husband is on 12 mg of Decadron a day for brain swelling due to brain tumor radiation treatments. He is a type 2 diabetic and his blood sugar goes sky high, often over 300. He is taking Ameril 4 mg 2x daily plus1000 mg metformin 2x daily. He has just been prescribed insulin to help lower his sugar levels. How often should I check his sugar? The directions say check before meals, what about snacks? ## Hello, Sweetie Pie! How is your husband doing? The steroid in the Decadron can cause elevation of his blood sugar levels, which likely explains why it was going so high. You should double check with his doctor, but checking for snacks could also be a good idea, if for nothing else than to give you a good baseline reading of where he's at, at any given time. ## I've been checking ...

deriphyllin injection is usually given in vein but it is given in intramuscularly
deriphyllin injection is usually given in vein but it is given in intramuscularly? ## There are very few cases of medications where this can actually cause problems or make a difference.

Will I Fail My Drug Test On Decadron, a corticosteroid
was prescriped decadron to take for 5 days. I am drug screened every week and need to know if this drug will give a positive result on a 10 panel test. ## Dexamethasone (decadron) can be detected in tests if it is something the lab is looking for. But if you were prescribed the medication then you have nothing to worry about. Just present the prescription prior to your drug screening, so they can keep it on file or at least take note of it and expect it to show up. I would only be concerned if this was not your prescription, but as you stated, it is.
