Hi, I started an oral 11day course of dexamethasone beginning at 12mg for double vision,obviously can’t sleep! Was wondering how others got on with this?


Just go with it… I stay up till about 2am then I find I sleep for about 4 hours uninterrupted which is all I need while taking Dex. After about midnight, rolling news channels usually bore me to sleep. And DVD box sets…

I take time off work so if I need to doze during the day, it doesn’t matter but basically I don’t try and fight it and I wouldn’t take anyting else to combat the side effects - Dex is a strong enough drug on its own.

I hope they work for you, they really do for me. And look forward to that blissful first good night’s sleep when it’s over.
