Comment:
Horrible reaction to Kenalog 40. Menstrual bleeding for 8 months straight, severe insomnia and depression, extreme weight loss, hair loss, cramping/pain all over my body. As many others have experienced, most doctors denied any connection between side effects and the drug and others said side effects are extremely rare and they've never seen them before. Seriously?!
