Betamethasone, a drug i came to know in 1995,a drug that relieved me of the scourge of the loss of smell and taste,a drug that i took which led to my face looking quite bloated.I was warned by my doctor that it has water retention properties and it makes the bones brittle.After taking it for 17 years, in small dosages (as and when my sense of smell and taste played up on me) that was exactly what happened. My face bloated and i had a bit of problem with my bones.Anyway,after surgery about 2 years back and having stopped the prescription of Betamethasone i found that my body frame has shrunk and the whole face back to what it was.I do not know whether to blame on the drug or not as it has given me at least 17 meaningful years of being able to smell and taste food and at the same time made my bones brittle.
