In brief: No
No special precautions are required for the Dexamethasone suppression tests, as side effects are virtually absent, and either test can be conducted on an outpatient basis by a compliant patient.
Obviously, the test cannot be performed if the patient is receiving exogenous acth or other glucocorticoids.
