Understanding Dexamethasone

This booklet discusses dexamethasone, a synthetic steroid that is one of the most frequently used medica­tions in the treatment of myeloma. It can be given as either an oral tablet or as an injection, alone or in combination with other agents. Dexamethasone’s anti-inflammatory actions can stop the swelling around tumors and the resulting pain and other symptoms caused by tumors pressing on nerve endings.
