    I have severe seasonal allergies. I get a shot in mid-August every year and it helps me get through the worst symptoms with only taking regular doses of over the counter allergy meds.

    I was given 3, X-ray guided injections of Depo Medrol, 80mg, for my severe sciatic pain which I have had for 5 years. None of the injections worked at all, not even for one day. It was a complete waste of time and over $600 out-of-pocket. Never again :(

    Have had two epidural steroid injections for herniated disks - first injection made me depressed and tired and caused digestive upset, but relieved pain for about four days. Second injection has caused same side effects along with a migraine that pretty much has not gone away completely for two weeks.
