Frequently asked questions about Betafoam Tablet

Frequently asked questions about Betamethasone

Betafoam 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.
Betafoam is safe to use when used for an indication in a dose as advised by your doctor.
