Dexadreson Injection 2mg/ml - 50ml (requires prescription)
Dexadreson Injection 2mg/ml - 50ml.
This preparation contains the sodium phosphate ester of dexamethasone, a fluoro-methyl derivative of prednisolone, which is a potent glucocorticoid with minimal mineralocorticoid activity.
Dexamethasone has ten to twenty times the anti-inflammatory activity of prednisolone.
Following intramuscular injection this soluble ester of dexamethasone is rapidly absorbed and hydrolysed to the parent alcohol giving a prompt response which is maintained for approximately 48 hours.
Dexadreson may be used whenever a parenteral corticosteroid preparation giving a medium duration of activity is indicated.
It can be used as an anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic agent in horses, cattle, pigs, dogs and cats and for the treatment of primary ketosis in cattle.
The product can also be used to induce parturition in cattle and as supportive therapy in cases of shock in horses.
Dexadreson is suitable for intravenous use in the horse and is thus of particular benefit in cases needing emergency treatment.
