Share this

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has cautioned the public against purchasing dexamethasone following news of the drug helping to reduce the number of deaths in COVID-19 patients on ventilators and oxygen in the United Kingdom.

The FDA in a statement said dexamethasone remains a prescription-only drug and under no circumstance should it be used as a preventive drug since it could lead to the suppression of the immune system and rather make people susceptible to falling ill from COVID-19.
