Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
Using Dexona tablet regularly from an early age produces some side effects like weight gain, osteoporosis, Prone to infections, prone to bony injuries, etc. Why are you taking this tablet? Is there some special indication for its long term use?

Steroids should never be taken in an irrational manner. They lower the immunity of the body and make you prone to many diseases.Weight gain may not give you as much pleasure as the agony of weak immunity will irritate you. Tapper off this medicine and adopt natural and dietary way to increase weight.
