The 4 mg/mL injection strength may be used for intralesional and soft tissue administration. Doses range from mg to 4 mg injected as a single dose at the appropriate site. For soft tissue and bursal injections a dose of 2 to 4 mg is recommended. Ganglia require a dose of 1 to 2 mg. A dose of to 1 mg is used for injection into tendon sheaths. Usually employed when condition to be treated is limited to 1 or 2 sites. Dosage dependent upon degree of inflammation, size, disease state, and location of affected area. Repeat doses may be given from once every 3 to 5 days to once every 2 to 3 weeks.

Inflammatory mediators play a major role in the pathogenesis of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of . dexamethasone on cytokine concentrations in tracheal aspirates (TA) of children with severe RSV disease and to correlate them with disease severity. Twenty-five cytokines were measured in TA obtained from children <2 yr old intubated for severe RSV disease, and enrolled in a double-blind study of . dexamethasone ( mg/kg; n = 22) vs. placebo (n = 19). Cytokine concentrations, measured at baseline and days 1 and 5 post-randomization using a multiplex assay, were compared within both treatment groups and correlated with: (i) tracheal white blood cell counts, (ii) tracheal RSV loads by culture and (iii) parameters of disease severity, including number of days of requirement for mechanical ventilation, intensive care unit (ICU), and hospitalization. At baseline interleukin (IL)-13 and IL-15 concentrations were significantly higher in the dexamethasone treatment group. On day 1 post-treatment, only MCP-1, eotaxin and IL-6 concentrations were significantly different but higher in the placebo group. On day 5: IL-13, IL-7, IL-8 and MIP-1alpha concentrations were higher in dexamethasone-treated patients. In both groups MIP-1beta inversely correlated with the days of ventilator support; MIP-1alpha, MIP-1beta and eotaxin inversely correlated with ICU days; and IL-6 inversely correlated with hospitalization regardless of the treatment assigned. Systemic administration of dexamethasone did not have a consistent effect on TA concentrations of pro-inflammatory cytokines. This may help explain, at least in part, the lack of clinical benefit of steroid treatment in children with severe RSV bronchiolitis.

Prolonged use of steroids may result in glaucoma, with damage to the optic nerve, defects in visual acuity and fields of vision, and posterior subcapsular cataract formation. Intraocular pressure should be routinely monitored even though it may be difficult in pediatric patients and uncooperative patients. Prolonged use may suppress the host response and thus increase the hazard of secondary ocular infections. In those diseases causing thinning of the cornea or sclera, perforations have been known to occur with the use of topical steroids. In acute purulent conditions of the eye, steroids may mask infection or enhance existing infection.

Wow. I wonder now if Decadron may be contributing to my partner's increased irritablity and anger. He gets Decadron as a pre-med infusion every two weeks as part of his chemotherapy treatments. He was also taking Decadron pills for a couple days after chemo, but stopped that (with his oncologist's blessing) a couple of treatments ago. He still gets the black hole appetite though and over the past few weeks has become for angry an intollerant of any mistakes that I or anyone else makes. Does anyone know how long it takes for the Decadron side effects to dissappear?
