Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Steronex 125mg Injection is a type of medicine called a steroid. It is used to treat different conditions including rheumatic disorder, blood disorders, asthma, severe allergic reactions and conditions that affect your eyes and skin.

Steronex 125mg Injection is usually given as an injection by your doctor into a vein, joint or muscle. The amount you are given will depend on what you are being treated for and how much you need to control your symptoms. If you are using this medication at home, learn exactly how to do it correctly from your doctor. You should always take the amount prescribed. Do not take a larger dose or use it more often. Taking a higher dose will not improve your condition faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. Keep taking it regularly even if you feel well. Do not suddenly stop this medication as your condition may become worse. It should always be stopped gradually.

The most common side effects of this medicine include nausea, headache, dizziness, sweating and swelling in your hands or ankles. If these side effects bother you or will not go away, your doctor may suggest ways of preventing or reducing them. Steroids may also lower your ability to fight infections so avoid being near people who might pass on infections such as measles, chickenpox or flu. Do not receive a live vaccine while using this medicine. Steroids can affect growth in children.

Before using this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you have brittle bones (osteoporosis), mood disorders, high blood pressure or liver disease. Also, tell your doctor if you have diabetes, this medicine may increase blood glucose levels which can worsen diabetes. Many other drugs may affect, or be affected by, this medicine so let your doctor know all other medicines you are using. This is done to make sure it is safe to use. You should also tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding. If this medicine is used for a long time you will have regular tests for blood sugar, blood pressure, bone density and eye examinations.

Side effects of Steronex Injection

Common
  • Nausea
  • Upset stomach
  • Mood changes

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Nausea
    You can help yourself by eating small, frequent meals rather than large ones and drinking plenty of fluids. Eat slowly. Avoid fatty, fried, spicy and very sweet foods. Eat cold or slightly warm food if the smell of cooked or cooking food makes you feel sick. Get plenty of fresh air. You could also try chewing ginger or drinking ginger tea. Eat bananas to replace potassium in your blood which can drop if you are sick (vomit). Use oral rehydration salts to replace vitamins and minerals lost through being sick. There are some medicines that can help you stop from feeling sick. Speak to your doctor if your condition does not improve.
  • Coping with Upset stomach
    Try taking your medicine with a meal or snack, or shortly after eating. It might help to eat smaller and more frequent meals, and to eat and drink slowly. Avoid foods which can irritate your stomach such as carbonated soft drinks, caffeine, fatty and spicy foods, mints and citrus fruits. Quit smoking and alcohol because they increase the symptoms. Do not eat for 3 or 4 hours before going to bed. Try raising the head of your bed at night or use extra pillows. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about medicines that may help, such as antacids, if your condition does not improve.
  • Coping with Mood changes
    If you feel this medicine is causing mood or behavior changes, speak to your doctor as you may need a change of medicine. There are also some things you can do yourself. Eat well, do relaxation or deep breathing exercises and practice regular exercise that you enjoy, such as walking, swimming or yoga. Try to avoid caffeine, alcohol and sugar as these can all cause mood swings or make them worse. A good night’s sleep can also help. It often helps to talk to a friend or family member even if you find this difficult. If it bothers you, consult with your doctor.
