Watch for Problems with Liquid Dexamethasone

You'll see more dexamethasone Rxs for asthma attacks in kids...instead of prednisone or prednisolone.

This is because dexamethasone is longer acting and can be used for just 1 to 2 days...instead of 3 to 5 days like prednisone or prednisolone. Plus it may cause less vomiting.

Be prepared for these Rxs by having dexamethasone on hand...and avoid common mishaps with dexamethasone orders.
