I had a dose with 80 mg a combination of cortisone and depo medrol injected into my neck,shoulders,and back over a 20 min. period. It was one of the most painful treatment I've ever had.It was used to help with Fibromyalgia.

First injection was effective about 4 days after I received it and I remained painless for about 4-6 months. My second injection has been ineffective in the eight days since I've received it. Little or no relief noted.

If go to the doctor and get the drug IM when I have an onset of asthma symptoms, I clear up faster than with p.o. meds.

I have Steven's Johnson Syndrome, and I use this, depo-medrol, along with Dexamethasone Sodium Phosphate. I have to have the injection with in 24 hrs of the for symptom. What I have to do is mix 1 cc. of each into a syringe, so a total of 2 cc's my first initial dose. Then I have to take the 1 cc of the Dexamethasone 2X a day for 5 days. This will stop the Stevens Johnson syndrome from spreading throughout my system, but what damages is done by the time I take it, is done. I hope this helps someone out there that has SJS, it is a very painful event when it flares up and I am so thankful I found a doctor that knew a lot about SJS.
