Hello,

By deca one would assume dexamethasone, a strong steroid. The effects can be quite localized in space and time for the side effects and still work.

So, local injection is the usual way it is administered and overall side effects are generally small.

Cannot say in your particular case, but generally. BUT if given as high dose oral, even so, the effects generally last a bit after being given but the side effects go away.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
