Could dexamethasone sodium phosphate be used as a muscle gaining steroid?
also would it stunt growth if taken in small doses?
Asked by Sarina Kunc 3 months ago.
Dexamethasone is a steroid, but it is not an anabolic steroid - it is a glucocorticoid. It is not likely to benefit muscles in any way, in fact it is more likely to cause atrophy. Basically it is a stress hormone that also has effects on your kidneys and suppresses the immune system. This is a drug that is usually prescribed to suppress the immune system in cases of auto-immune disorders (lupus, arthritis) or serious inflammation. You would become more susceptible to potentially serious infections. You could also have serious and potentially permanent problems with electrolyte imbalance if you abuse this drug. It can also affect glucose tolerance and induce diabetes in predisposed people. Bottom line: don't do this to yourself. Answered by Lilly Scharpman 3 months ago.

After the expiration date, it is more likely to have grown nasty bacteria in it. That could make your problem worse. Also, I don't think the drug itself is stable after a year. Answered by Danyel Francesconi 3 months ago.
Drugs have an expiration date for a reason, they break down over time and lose their efficacy. Some drugs also begin to become toxic, due to bacterial growth. The best advice would be to throw out the drugs you have and get new ones. Answered by Katharina Schissel 3 months ago.

No... you cannot use it again. Either its effectivity has gone completely, or worse, it could have changed chemically and actually be harmful if used. Throw it out. But DO call your vet and explain - he might be willing to sell you a new bottle without any other additional expense. Answered by Isaiah Serfling 3 months ago.
The warning is there because some human and animal meds can change chemically after they have expired, and cause bad side effects and this could possibly lead to serious damage to the cat/patient. Perhaps you could just call your vet and get a new bottle? Good luck Answered by Laci Heider 3 months ago.
expired medication can lose it's potency rendering it pretty useless. Call the vet for a refill on some current medication. Answered by Johana Fronick 3 months ago.

Kitten's Eye infection?
I THINK IT MIGHT BE THE FLU, COZ HE SNEEZES, AND I DID CALL THE VET AND HE TOLD ME TO PUT THE EYE DROPS..
Asked by Chantal Mckitrick 3 months ago.
It's best to take this lil guy to the vet pronto. My kitten had this same problem and it quickly escalated to a respiratory infection. I needed prescription drops for his eye, and a salve for his nose which became so chapped (from the nose running all the time), that the skin peeled right off it. Also he got a BAD cold, and was sniffling and sneezing and his whole body was convulsing when he'd cough. He needed antibiotics administered every 4 hours for like 2-3 weeks. And because he was so small and young, it took him a full month, if not longer to get over this. Don't chance this, if you nip it in the bud, it won't be so bad for your little dude. Good Luck. :) Answered by Myrta Coffey 3 months ago.
My little dude had a gummy eye when i got him and no amount of bathing stopped it. Turned out it was the start of cat flu and the vet gave me some cream to put in his eye. he survived the flu and his eye cleared of the infection although it does still run all the time. just ask the vet Answered by Joleen Haugen 3 months ago.
just wash the the kittens eye with a cloth and warm water when ever you see it "gunky" I work at a shelter and there is always one kitten that needs this done, they will go away. if you want to know about the eye drops call a vet. I think there are limited medications you can give to new born kittens. Answered by Jacqueline Stueckrath 3 months ago.
the kitten probably is getting an upper respiratory infection (which it can contract from its mother)..usually with the infection the kitten gets conjunctivitis.. the vet is the only one that can treat either effectively.. my advice would b to take mother and kittens to the vet and get a checkup on them all..and get antibiotics for the problem... both conjunctivitis and upper respiratory infections are both highly contagious..

is a potent synthetic member of the glucocorticoid class of steroid hormones. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, e.g., rheumatoid arthritis. augment the antiemetic effect of 5-HT3 receptor antagonists like ondansetron patients undergoing chemotherapy, to counteract certain side-effects of their antitumor treatment decreases brain edema...spinal cord compression certain hematological malignancies, especially in the treatment of multiple myeloma, in which dexamethasone is given alone or together with thalidomide (thal-dex) or a combination of adriamycin and vincristine local injections....plantar fasciitis musculoskeletal conditions counteract allergic shock (anaphylactic shock...) congenital adrenal hyperplasia, to prevent virilisation of a female fetus high altitude pulmonary edema. Diagnostic use (Cushing's syndrome) are generally diagnosed by a 24-hour urine collection for cortisol or by a dexamethasone suppression test. Side effects If dexamethasone is given orally or by injection (parenteral) over a period of more than a few days, side-effects common to systemic glucocorticoids may occur. These may include: * Stomach upset, increased sensitivity to stomach acid to the point of ulceration of esophagus, stomach, and duodenum * Increased appetite leading to significant weight gain * A latent diabetes mellitus often becomes manifest. Glucose intolerance is worsened in patients with preexisting diabetes. * Immunsuppressant action, particularly if given together with other immunosuppressants such as ciclosporine. Bacterial, viral, and fungal disease may progress more easily and can become life-threatening. Fever as a warning symptom is often suppressed. * Psychiatric disturbances, including personality changes, irritability, euphoria, mania * Osteoporosis under long term treatment, pathologic fractures (e.g., hip) * Muscle atrophy, negative protein balance (catabolism) * Elevated liver enzymes, fatty liver degeneration (usually reversible) * Cushingoid (syndrome resembling hyperactive adrenal cortex with increase in adiposity, hypertension, bone demineralization, etc.) * Depression of the adrenal gland is usually seen, if more than 1.5 mg daily are given for more than three weeks to a month. * Hypertension, fluid and sodium retention, edema, worsening of heart insufficiency (due to mineral corticoid activity) * Dependence with withdrawal syndrome is frequently seen. * Increased intraocular pressure, certain types of glaucoma, cataract (serious clouding of eye lenses) * Dermatologic: Acne, allergic dermatitis, dry scaly skin, ecchymoses and petechiae, erythema, impaired wound-healing, increased sweating, rash, striae, suppression of reactions to skin tests, thin fragile skin, thinning scalp hair, urticaria. * Allergic reactions (though infrequently): Anaphylactoid reaction, anaphylaxis, angioedema. (Highly unlikely, since dexamethasone is given to prevent anaphylactoid reactions.) Interactions * NSAIDs and alcohol: increased risk of gastrointestinal ulceration * Mineralocorticoids: increased risk of hypertension, edema and heart problems * Oral antidiabetic drugs and insulin: antidiabetic therapy may have to be adjusted Other interactions (with certain antibiotics, estrogens, ephedrine, digoxin) are known.

Asked by Sasha Mcgirr 3 months ago.
I asked a question about my dog a few weeks ago, however, I am having the problem again and am hoping I can get more answers. A few weeks ago, I noticed that my dog was having a hard time keeping his eyes open, and they eventually became glassy and very red. I immediately took him to my vet, who referred me to an eye doctor for pets. They wanted $600 to run tests to find out exactly what was causing it, which I did not have at the time. So, they gave me a bunch of different things to try to cure his problem. (3 different eye drops, a steroid and an infection fighting pill.) The first time he was in, his pressure in his eyes was at 20, which the vet was very concerned about. However, I had to bring him back in a few days later after being on the medicine and his pressure was down to 14. They wanted me to bring him back in again for another $500 visit that I once again can't afford and they refuse to take payments. (nice, right?) He finished the infection pill a few days ago, the steroid lasts for a few more weeks, however this morning I just noticed that one of his eyes is starting to do it again. I called them back and they said sine we can't afford to pay the $500 upfront, they can't help us. Is there anyone on here who has any idea what this could be, and why it came back? Since his pressures went back down, I don't think it could be glaucoma, could it? Could it just be an infection, since this just started acting up again a few days after the infection fighting pill ended? Best answer gets 10 points, please if anyone knows let me know. I am very worried about my dog. :( Answered by Jacqualine Dorschner 3 months ago.
No one can diagnose your dog online. Only the specialist can take care of this problem. My cat cost me $2400.00 to have his eye taken care, and I found the money. Specialist don't take payments, you aren't an established client. Eye problems are very painful, so if you cannot afford care, please surrender the poor dog to someone who can take proper care.
