Also, this medication is used in children to treat asthma, allergic reactions, some auto-immune disorders, croup, and pneumonia.

 

Dexamethasone is available as an add-on (only $27) to any Jase Case order, AND is also now included in every KidCase at no extra cost, just to make the KidCase more robust for our little ones.

 

Things to consider:

  1. Dexamethasone was on the list of drug shortages from 2019 into 2023

Safeguard against potential shortages by having your own personal supply on hand in your Jase Case.
