Varies: It depends on the injury or problem. Sometimes a shot will be a one-time fix. Other times it might only last a short while. I generally don't advocate for repeated steroid shots anyway.

Splints, braces, physical therapy, or supplements such as turmeric, glucosamine, MSM, chondroitin, etc, may also help joints. ...Read more

How long does HGH stay in your system? Had one injection of omnitrope somatropin 5.8 mg into my back a couple days ago.
Hard to say: Since that's a fairly large dose, probably hours to 1-2 days at most. Why would you take such a large one time dose?

If it's the latter group, such administration is not only illegal, but also medically dangerous and should be avoided. ...Read more
