Nigerian Doctors warn against WHO approved coronavirus drug dexamethasone, says it could kill



Nigerian doctors have warned against the abuse of Dexamethasone, the drug hailed by UK scientists as a major breakthrough for the treatment of COVID-19, this is even as the NCDC has announced the drug use is yet to be approved in Nigeria.


Scientists in the United Kingdom said the widely used low-dose steroid has been found to considerably reduce the risk of patients dying from COVID-19.

However, doctors are warning Nigerians not to try self-medicating with the drug because the side effects are numerous.

@DrOlufunmilayo tweeted: "VERY URGENT: Dexamethasone is for treating 2categories of Covid19 patients: •Those on ventilator •Those on oxygen IF you can read this tweet, You are NOT in that category. IF you use dexamethasone when you don’t need it, it can cause side effects that will kill you."

"It can cause side effects that will kill you" - Nigerian doctor warns against abusing new COVID-19 drug Dexamethasone

When asked what these side effects are, another doctor said they are numerous.
