Dexamethasone side effects worse than Taxotere/Cyclophosamine. Suggested less virulent alternative steroid for further TC courses?


Hi there,

Dexamethasone is like a natural hormone that is produced by your adrenal glands. If you have problems with adrenal gland your doctor will mostly prescribe you this medication, but also if you have cancer problems you can use this medication. I know that this medication has many side effects, like upset stomach, vomiting problem, headaches and dizziness. Also you can notice increased levels of anxiety and depression, along with insomnia. Some can notice onset of acne and excessive hair growth on their body. Your skin will be sensitive to bruising and if you are woman you will have problems with menstrual period. I hope this helped in any way.


All the best,
