My doctor injected a COMBINATION of KENALOG and LYDOCAINE into the joints in my knees due to extreme swelling from osto-arthritis. She told me it could last anywhere from 2 hours to 2 months. I had total relief from swelling and pain for 6 weeks. I have had no side effects or problems around injection site. Perhaps mixing Kenalog with other compatible drugs reduces the chances of side effects. ...

I haven't been able to take a deep breath since getting this shot. It has been 3 months. They keep doing tests to me and nothing is wrong. It has cost me so much money in time and medical bills. I can barely walk because I can't breath.

I had the flu which quickly changed to bronchitis. This is common with me, because I have only the use of one one lung due to a doctor nicking the phrenic nerve on one side, Which throws the diaphragm on that site. I had been fighting the illness bronchitis for two weeks. I had been given Tamiflu, and then a week of Cipro, and although they both helped a little bit I was still coughing up yuck. After this shot of traimcinolone I pretty much finished healing within three days. I was still tired for about a week, but it really helped.

After many sinus infections + sinus surgery I was given a shot of kenalog-40 in my upper arm last year. I am an 81 female. I have two injections a year, and that + saline nasal spray allows me to breath normally and I haven't had an infection.

I had severe Psoriasis/Eczema on the outer side of my foot for almost 4 years. I was at the point where I could not even wear shoes that didn't cover it. I went to see the dermatologist and they prescribed a clorbetasol gel and a 40 mg injection of Kenalog. At first I felt like it was getting worse for the first 2 weeks....then week 3 it was getting better, by week 4 almost all the visual symptoms of the Psoriasis has healed. I have a patch or two that are a little red. I am very happy with the outcome of the treatment.
