If the Kenalog is to be used for a joint injection and the injection is done under sterile conditions, there is little danger for the Kenalog 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.

Does kenalog prednisone injection cause weight gain?

Dose & Frequency

Maternal_steroids
The use of kenalog injections is common for a wide variety of maladies. It is quite unlikely to cause weight gain in the usual way it is given. However, if the dose is very large and it is given frequently, side effects may occur. However, oral dosing of kenalog (triamcinolone acetonide) can cause weight gain among other side effect that go along with corticosteroid use.

Is Elmiron a better solution than a lidocaine injection?

Takes longer

Lidocaine
Elmiron takes about 3 months to start giving you relief from interstitial cystitis symptoms. Typically the other treatment is bladder instillations with a solution of Lidocaine, Heparin and Sodium Bicarbonate. It's the heparin that actually treats the condition, the other drugs are for symptoms. Heparin instillations work immediately but you'll typically need 8-12 treatments.
