    The injections hurt more than I expected. After 4injections I was not receiving any relief, instead I got a headache that cost me two days work. I also have gained 14 lbs. within 4 months. It is safe to say that I will not resume treatment.

    I just received my second injection to treat severe allergies (3/2013). My allergies are practically debilitating - I was taking allergra-D daily, using a neti-pot to irrigate my sinuses, and still suffered from constant post-nasal drip, sinus headaches, heavy congestion, etc. I was not aware of the potential side effects before I first received the injection in November 2012. Like clockwork, a ... Show Full Comment

    This is used by Some Doctors as a scar reducer after cosmetic surgery. Large doses stop your natural cortisol system, endocrine system, parathyroid and other imuno active functions. Extended use will cause Electrolyte absorption stoppage, Steroid dependency, diabetes and, in my case, cardiac arrest, pneumonic embolism and pneumonia. Be very careful, it is long lasting and systemic. I'm sure re ... Show Full Comment

    I got this shot to relieve sinus allergies and asthma. Very happy with the results. I did review the medicine before agreeing to the application to make sure I knew what I was getting into. It's been over a week and my head is no longer stuffy everyday. I have started backing down on the daily meds I was taking, claritan, etc.
