Betamethasone Dipropionate - Overview
Betamethasone is a type of steroid medication available in a cream form that is similar to prednisone. People who need a betamethasone cream prescription can connect with a medical provider in their area through Push Health who can prescribe betamethasone cream when appropriate to do so.
What Is Betamethasone Used For?
Betamethasone, marketed under brand names such as Celestone and Diprolene, belongs to a class of medications known as topical steroid medications. Betamethasone dipropionate is considered a high-potency steroid and is used to treat dermatoses that are thought to be responsive to corticosteroids. Betamethasone valerate is another preparation also used, sometimes in the management of skin conditions such as eczema. Betamethasone is similar to other steroid medications like desonide, hydrocortisone, methylprednisolone, and triamcinolone. Betamethasone is combined with clotrimazole in the medication Lotrisone.
Betamethasone Cream - Cost and Dosage
Betamethasone is moderately affordable at under $35 for a 45 gram tube of betamethasone dipropionate 0.05% cream at most pharmacies. Some insurance plans may cover the cost of a betamethasone prescription and betamethasone coupons may be available to help cover any out-of-pocket costs of the medication. Betamethasone dipropionate itself is found as a white crystalline powder that is not soluble in water. As Diprolene, betamethasone should generally be stored between 2° C and 30°, C but it is advised to refer to the package insert for specific instructions.
Can I Buy Betamethasone Online?
Betamethasone, including betamethasone dipropionate and betamethasone valerate, is a prescription medication that is not available over-the-counter (OTC) in the United States. As a result, one cannot legally buy betamethasone online. To get a prescription for betamethasone, people can connect with medical providers through Push Health who can prescribe the cream if safe and appropriate to do so.
Betamethasone - Side Effects
Betamethasone can cause side effects. Side effects from betamethasone use include burning, itching, dryness, skin irritation, infection and skin color changes. Because it is a type of steroid, betamethasone can affect HPA axis function and should be monitored for HPA axis suppression. People who have had a past allergy or hypersensitivity to betamethasone should not use the medication. Betamethasone and alcohol should not be used together. Questions about betamethasone's side effects should be discussed with one's pharmacist and medical provider.
