I had the kenalog (triamcinolone) injection yesterday for allergic rhinnitis. Post nasal drip has not cleared. Should kenalog (triamcinolone) have worked by now?
Not likely: Steroids have a delayed onset of action due to the mechanism of how they work. If the allergy symptoms are significant, it may take even longer to see significant relief. In the U.S. The use of injectable steroids for the treatment of allergic rhinitis has fallen out of favor due to the risks and the availability of effective nose sprays. An allergist can provide a plan without those risks! ...Read more

How long does it take for a 40mg shot of depo medrol (methylprednisolone) (injected in the bottom) to work for allergic rhinitis and sinus infection??
Hours: depomedrol starts to work in about 6 hrs but the peak effects will come many hours later. Do note that it does not always work for rhinitis. As for sinus infection, it may be used along with an antibiotic but by itself the benefits will at best be temporarily without the infection eradicated. Note that this is not the customary treatment since nasal steroid works at least as well. ...Read more

Ideally surgery will decrease the need for oral antibiotics but you still might need nasal steroids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
