Kenalog 80 Mg
Can alopecia areata be treated in pregnancy with kenalog (triamcinolone) injections or should expectant mothers wait until after delivery?
Yes: Yes, should be unless you have high and poorly controlled blood sugar levels.
Is 80 mg kenalog (triamcinolone) inj into left adductor tendon powerful enough to reduce internal rotation/ adduction strength by 50%?
No: The purpose of the injection is 2 decrease inflammation, & this should improve ur function in adduction and not make it worse. I would b sure it was done by a qualified md. Also if so get back into c u r orthopedist.
Try to avoid Kenalog (triamcinolone): Kenalog (triamcinolone) is not an allergy shot, but rather a corticosteroid. As such it has significant side effects that are cumulative. The more steroid injections you get the greater the risks of permanent, possibly life threatening injections. They also do not cure symptoms rather cover them up. With multiple, effective other therapeutic options oral/injectable steroids should be reserved for severe reactions.
Kenalog (triamcinolone) action.: You should see its effect within 48 hours.See 1 more doctor answer
Minimal: If the kenalog (triamcinolone) is to be used for a joint injection and the injection is done under sterile conditions, there is little danger for the kenalog (triamcinolone) injection. It also be given as an injection intramuscularly to reduce inflammatory symptoms and again is not typically dangerous. Diabetics might see a rise in glucose levels for a short time.
Injected WHERE?: Injected into muscle it lasts about 1 month. Injected into a joint it lasts longer. It is not possible to be any more exact about duration of therapeutic activity in a joint.
Possible: A side effect of kenalog (triamcinolone) and other steroids can be atrophy or loss of tissue just below the skin where the injection was given. Steroids that are injected can also cause a loss of pigment to the skin where the injection was given. These are not common problems but they can occur.
Almost immediately: Nts, very quickly-2-3days. For skin lesions longer, since new tissue need be formed. New tissue need be formed!

How long after an intramuscular Kenalog injection until the medication and/or its effects are completely cleared from the body?
2-3 weeks: This depends in part on how much you got. So if you know the side effects from her flushing those go away fairly quickly it depends what you're getting the Kenalog for
How long do the effects of an intramuscular Kenalog injection typically last? How long before the medication is totally cleared from the body?
Two weeks: Is a guestimate. Possibly longer. Kenalog is not a drug of abuse nor does it have many side effects, so wondering why you are concerned about total body clearance? You can look up patient information for Kenalog online.
Kenalog (triamcinolone) in orabase: This is used as an oral bandage to treat or cover sores/ulcers in the mouth. Swallowing small amounts used in this manor is not harmful.See 1 more doctor answer
