Betamethasone is a corticosteroid medication that is used to manage inflammation and modulate an overactive immune system.

Betamethasone is used to treat a range of inflammatory conditions, including arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, allergic disorders, endocrine disorders, and conditions affecting the skin, eyes, lungs, stomach, nervous system, and blood cells. Corticosteroids are essential substances that are naturally produced by the body for proper functioning.

Betamethasone effectively hinders the release of pro-inflammatory substances in the body, thus reducing inflammation.

Uses and Dosage

Betamethasone is available in various forms including tablet, injectable solution and topicals. Your physician will instruct you on the appropriate dosing schedule based on your condition and response to treatment. Ensure to take betamethasone exactly as prescribed and to avoid modifying the dose without medical advice.

To take the orally disintegrating tablet, peel back the foil packaging using dry hands. The tablet should be placed on the tongue, where it will dissolve quickly, and may be swallowed with or without water. The tablet should not be chewed, split, or broken.

Your physician may adjust your dose of prednisolone during treatment to ensure optimal results. This may be necessary in the event of significant changes in your health, such as surgery, illness, infection, or severe asthma attack. Inform your doctor of any improvements, worsening of symptoms, or changes in health during treatment.

Betamethasone is a means of managing an ongoing condition, but it cannot cure it. Continue taking betamethasone, even if you feel well, and to avoid abruptly discontinuing the medication without medical advice. Abrupt cessation of betamethasonemay result in insufficient production of naturally occurring steroids, leading to symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, slowed movements, upset stomach, weight loss, changes in skin color, sores in the mouth, and a craving for salt.
