Doctor: Welcome to Ask The Doctor.We are here to help you.You have developed Drug-induced Cushing’s Syndrome. This is the most common and serious side effect of Steroids like Dexamethasone. Now, since you have got the side effects, you need to understand that now your body is dependent on the steroids. So I would advise you to get your Serum Cortisol levels done. You would require to taper and stop the steroids. Also, get your blood sugar, calcium and vitamin D levels done. Once you stop the steroids your body will gradually start to recover. But this will take a lot of time. Start exercises.Take an opinion of an Endocrinologist.Stay Healthy.
