Frequently asked questions about Ben Injection

Frequently asked questions about Betamethasone

Ben is a glucocorticoid and belongs to a group of medicines called steroids also known as corticosteroids. These are synthesized naturally in the body and help to maintain health and well-being. Two main classes of corticosteroids, glucocorticoids, and mineralocorticoids are involved in a wide range of physiologic processes, including stress response, immune response, and regulation of inflammation, carbohydrate metabolism, protein catabolism, blood electrolyte levels, and behavior.
Ben is safe to use when used for an indication in a dose as advised by your doctor.
Ben is not known to cause hair loss. Rather, it may cause an increase in body hair growth (especially in females) on long-term use. Talk to your doctor if you get excessive hair growth on your body while taking Ben.
Ben is not an antibiotic. It's a glucocorticoid.
Ben is not used in retention edema. Glucocorticoids can cause fluid and salt retention as a side effect thereby causing edema or aggravating edema. However, Ben does not normally cause retention of salt and water and the risk of inducing edema and hypertension is almost negligible.
