My doctor has prescribed dexamethasone(steroid pills) for my neck pain. He want me to take it for 3 weeks. He said, if taken longer it can cause stomach ulcers, diabetes, weight gain and high blood pressure. I'm afraid of all these side effects. I took my first pill today. My stomach was upset after taking it which is another side effect. I don't want to take this pill for three weeks because I've had a lot of stomach issues in the past. Has anyone taken this prescription? If so, did you have any serious side effects after or while taking it?
