Dexamethasone

Dexamethasone belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids. Dexamethasone is indicated for replacement therapy in secondary adrenal insufficiency arising from insufficient corticotrophin secretion. It is not indicated for primary adrenal insufficiency states, such as Addisons disease or after adrenalectomy. In such cases hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone in combination is more appropriate.
