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 :(

Comment:
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.

My doctor has administered injections on two separate occasions. One for allergies (WOW..Fantastic!) and once for a skin rash. Worked great for both. I had one yesterday, and I notice that the chronic foot pain that I have had for years is not there today. What a great side effect.

I was referred by a co-worker who suffers from severe allergies as I do. I went in the same day I found out about Depo-Merolo and got a shot. Within 5 minutes my conjestion was cleared and the dry cough was non-existent. For myself it was a miracle shot.
