Dexamethasone has been successfully tested in the UK for the treatment of corona, but it is not a generic drug but a steroid and is used only to save lives in the event of a worsening of the disease.
Medical experts have warned that it should be used in Pakistan only on the advice of a doctor as its misuse can cause irreparable damage to human health.
Secretary General Pakistan Medical Association Dr. Qaiser Sajjad has suggested to the Federal Government that Dexa Methasone should be allowed to be used in Corona disease only after consultation with medical experts.
The Pakistan Medical Association has requested the federal government to provide the public with all kinds of information, including genetic names, about the names of the drugs that are emerging in the treatment of corona.
Scientists at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom have successfully tested the drug dexamethasone against corona, which has led to the recovery of one in three critically ill corona patients.
According to British scientist Professor Peter Harbe, this is the first drug to reduce mortality in Corona and is a significant development.
In this regard, Dr. Zafar Mirza, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Health, said that an expert committee in Pakistan would consider the use of this drug.
