Taking dexamethasone without a doctor’s advice can raise blood pressure and sugar, while the drug can paralyze the brain and drive a person insane, says Dr. Faheem Younis, an infectious disease specialist based in US.
Dexamethasone use without a doctor’s prescription can be fatal. With the recent release of the effective coronavirus injection dexamethasone, there is a growing perception that people who have developed coronavirus may be able to use it. But now US-based and infectious disease specialist Dr. Faheem Younis, speaking on a private TV channel, has warned that the use of dexamethasone without a doctor’s prescription can be fatal.
He said that taking dexamethasone without a doctor’s advice can raise blood pressure and sugar, while the drug can paralyze the brain and drive a person insane.
He spoke in support of the US Alliance, but said that maintaining some independence was not the answer.
“People shouldn’t try it for themselves, it can be very dangerous,” he said. This drug is used only on patients who are on ventilator, otherwise it can cause serious harm. “We’ve been working on the pros and cons of dexamethasone for 20 years, and I’m afraid 95% of people won’t start using it without a doctor’s advice,” he said.
Because using it without advice can drive a person crazy. It may be recalled that British scientists had discovered a cheap drug for the treatment of coronavirus disease. People’s lives could have been saved. According to British media, scientists in the UK have discovered a cheap medicine to treat coronavirus. This medicine is part of the medicine used as a trial against coronavirus virus in the world.
In the light of these trials, the effect of these drugs in the treatment of coronavirus is being seen. A very small amount of dexamethasone in these drugs has been shown to be extremely useful in eradicating the coronavirus virus. Dexamethasone has been reported to reduce coronavirus heart disease mortality. One-third of the patients recovered from the drug on a ventilator. 4,000 to 5,000 lives could have been saved if the drug had been used first on critically ill patients
