Has anyone every had dexamethasone before. I have morphea (severe case) on my right waist to knee area. I have been tossed back and forth between doctors because no one knows what to do. My new dermatologist wants to talk with me about taking this steroid 3 days a month. Any info on your experiences sure would make it easier for me to make my decision on what to do.

I'm sorry that I can't help you from a personal experience, but I did find some information on Dexamethasone from our drug info site. Here's some clips from this page:

Dexamethasone is in a class of drugs called steroids. Dexamethasone reduces swelling and decreases the body's immune response.

It is also used to treat many immune and allergic disorders, such as arthritis, lupus, severe psoriasis, severe asthma, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease.

If you do start taking it, I hope it helps. The fact that it's used for severe psoriasis may be why it was chosen by your doctor.
Please let us know how it goes.

Big Hugs,
