I've been told a Kenalog allergy shot can affect my menstrual cycle. In what way (s) does it affect the cycle and for how long?

Menses: I don't know the answer to your question, but there are anecdotal reports of women who noted more prolonged menstrual bleeding after a corticosteroid injection. I believe that an gynecological endocrinologist is best qualified to answer this question. Read more

How effective is the allergy shot kenalog (triamcinolone)?

How effective is the allergy shot kenalog (triamcinolone)?

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. Read more

If you are an adult and have had the kenalog (triamcinolone) shot for being allergic to kittens and now kittens are cats does that mean allergy is gone?

Kenalog (triamcinolone) old rx 4 cat: Kenalog (triamcinolone) is an injectable steroid that can suppress allergy symptoms but does nothing to alter allergic sensitization and can cause significant short and long term steroid side effects esp. If used repeatedly. Due to better, safer therapies injectable and oral steroids are used much less than in the past. Cat allergy is cat allergy, but symptoms can change with time & in some kittens worse vs cat. Read more

I've been given kenalog (triamcinolone) shots in the past for sinus and allergy problems, is it safe to keep getting them. Is it likely to develop an allergic reactio?

No: Kenalog (triamcinolone) or cortisone shot is rarely, if ever, indicated for treating allergic and sinus problems since it doesn't work any better than cortisone pills which may be used in chronic sinusitis for a brief duration. Nasal steroid is far safer. If your problem cannot be controlled with inhaled steroid, see an allergist. Frequent Kenalog (triamcinolone) dosing causes many side effects (diabetes, adrenal suppression etc) Read more

I had a kenalog (triamcinolone) injection this afternoon for allergies. Since they the area around my neck have felt sore and weak. Should I be worried?

Probably bruise: This is probably a bruise. If it is red and raised it could be infected. I would call the doctors office who performed the shot. Allergy to kenalog (triamcinolone) would be unusual. Use antihistamines such as fexofenadine and a steroid nasal spray such as fluticasone to treat your allergy symptoms, fewer side effects than a steroid injection. Read more

I am using Triamcinolone Acetonide inj 1 ml (40mg) for skin allergy. After how much gap I can use again. Do I need to take any antibiotic with it?

As infrequent as. ..: But it will likely be ok if you get 40 mg intralesionally once every 3 or 4 months. Do note that some of the side effects from steroid exposure are dependent on total cumulative exposure and thus the total amount received over time does matter. Read more
