With increasing doses of corticosteroids, the rate of dexamethasone of infectious complications increases. Corticosteroids may also mask some signs of current infection, dexamethasone 1mg/ml. Fungal Infections Corticosteroids may exacerbate systemic fungal infections and therefore should not be used in the presence of such infections unless they are needed to control life-threatening drug reactions.
Amphotericin B injection and potassium-depleting agents. Special Pathogens Latent disease may be activated or there may be an exacerbation of intercurrent infections due to pathogens, including those caused by Amoeba, Candida, Cryptococcus, Mycobacterium, Nocardia, Pneumocystis, Toxoplasma.
It is recommended that latent amebiasis or active amebiasis be ruled out dexamethasone initiating corticosteroid therapy in any 1mg/ml who has spent 1mg/ml in the tropics or any patient with 1mg/ml diarrhea.
Similarly, corticosteroids should be used with great care in patients with known or suspected Strongyloides threadworm infestation, dexamethasone 1mg/ml.
In such patients, dexamethasone 1mg/ml, corticosteroid-induced immunosuppression may lead to Strongyloides hyperinfection and dissemination with widespread larval migration, often accompanied by severe enterocolitis and potentially fatal gram-negative septicemia, dexamethasone 1mg/ml.
Corticosteroids should not be used in cerebral malaria. Tuberculosis The use of corticosteroids in active tuberculosis dexamethasone be restricted to those cases of fulminating or dexamethasone tuberculosis in dexamethasone the corticosteroid is used for the management of the disease in conjunction with an appropriate antituberculous regimen.
If corticosteroids are indicated in patients with latent tuberculosis or tuberculin reactivity, close observation is necessary as dexamethasone of the disease may occur. During prolonged corticosteroid therapy, 1mg/ml patients should receive chemoprophylaxis. Vaccination Administration of live or 1mg/ml, attenuated vaccines is contraindicated in patients receiving immunosuppressive doses of corticosteroids. Killed or inactivated vaccines may be administered, dexamethasone 1mg/ml. However, the response to such vaccines cannot be predicted.

If chickenpox develops, treatment with antiviral agents should be considered. Ophthalmic Use of corticosteroids may produce posterior subcapsular cataracts, glaucoma with possible damage to the optic nerves, and may enhance the establishment of secondary ocular infections due to bacteria, fungi, or viruses.
The use of oral corticosteroids is not recommended in the treatment of optic neuritis and may lead to an increase in the risk of new episodes. Corticosteroids should not be used in active ocular herpes simplex. When reduction in dosage is possible, the reduction should be gradual.

Test to distinguish Dexamethasone syndrome caused by pituitary ACTH excess from the syndrome induced by other causes: Dosage should be limited to a single dose on alternate days to lessen retardation of growth and minimize suppression of hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis.
At high doses, sufficient calcium intake and sodium restriction, as well as serum potassium levels should be monitored. Additional medical treatment should be considered in the event of preexisting osteoporosis. Paediatric population Corticosteroids cause a dose-dependent inhibition of growth in infancy, childhood, and adolescence, which may be irreversible.
Influence of diagnostic tests Glucocorticoids 1mg/ml suppress skin reaction to allergy testing. They can also affect the nitroblue tetrazolium dexamethasone for bacterial 1mg/ml and cause false-negative results. Excipient Warnings Patients with rare hereditary problems of fructose intolerance should not take this medicine.
Caution in acute infection, especially systemic fungal infections. Caution with positive sputum cultures for Candida albicans.
Caution in gastrointestinal ulceration 1mg/ml renal disease. In addition, convulsions have been reported. CYP3A4 substrates eg, erythromycin, indinavir Plasma levels may be reduced by dexamethasone, decreasing efficacy. Digoxin Because dexamethasone possible dexamethasone-induced hypokalemia, the risk of arrhythmias may be increased.
Hepatic enzyme inducers eg, que es zocor 20mg, carbamazepine, phenytoin, rifampin Dexamethasone plasma levels may be reduced, decreasing the efficacy. In addition, seizure control with phenytoin may be altered. Single use eye drops which are sterile and preservative free, dexamethasone 1mg/ml. A colourless solution when examined under suitable conditions of visibility, which is clear and free from particles. Posology The usual dose is 1 drop, dexamethasone 1mg/ml, 4 to 6 times daily in the 1mg/ml eye.
