Remarks

NOTE* Dexamethosine may be coded as either an ancillary drug or hormone. Review chart to determine if given for supportive care or as hormonal therapy.

A long-acting corticosteroid (glucocorticoid). In general, this drug is used more commonly for supportive care, and as an antiemetic than it is as hormone therapy. 25 times as potent as cortisol; used topically as an anti-inflammatory and administered orally in replacement therapy for adrenal insufficiency, as an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant in a wide variety of disorders, and as an antiemetic in cancer chemotherapy. Dexamethasone and other corticosteroids may be used to control white cell proliferation in hematopoietic diseases and would be coded as hormone therapy for lymphoid leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma.
