I am Adverse to Pharmaceuticals and follow a holistic approach. My hematologist convinced me to try Dexamethasone since my platelets were at 17. ....what a mistake.
First of all I didn't know that it is 5 times stronger than prednisone. I was reluctantly open to try it because of the short 5 day course and low dosage of 12 mg/day.
At first I felt like Superman in terms of energy, appetite, and clearing skin. But within a day or 2 all that changed. I could not sleep for 3 days and could feel my resistance getting lower. Particularly I felt like I was developing pneumonia expelling brownish green mucous. Then I developed Diarrhea, fever, loss of energy and appetite. I was virtually lifeless and weak. It suppressed my natural immunity.
Anyone with experience or knowledge of Dexamethasone, can you please comment on or share similar experiences?
