My mother has Been taking dexamethasone for 2&1/2 months she is bloated and her ankles are swollen should either of these be caused by taking this medication for such a long period. Everything I have read has been 10-20day supplements
Why is she taking it? Usually its short term and can cause both those problems.
Call her Doctor and let him or her know about this.
