ORADEXON 0.5MG TABLET
Generic Name: DEXAMETHASONE
Each tablet contains dexamethasone 0.5 mg.
Dexamethasone is a synthetic glucocorticoid with >7 times anti-inflammatory potency than prednisolone. Like other glucocorticoids, dexamethasone also has anti-allergic, antitoxic, antishock, antipyretic and immunosuppressive properties.
Dexamethasone has practically no water and salt-retaining properties and is, therefore, particularly suitable for use in patients with cardiac failure or hypertension. Because of the long biological half-life (t½) (36-54 hrs), dexamethasone is especially suitable in conditions where a continuous glucocorticoid action is desired.
