There are several: Depo-Medrol, Medrol, Solu-Medrol, Celestone Soluspan, Aristospan. These are all corticosteroid injections and are still commonly called "cortisone" injections. Answered by Janene Snider 2 years ago.
Over the years I have had a few Synvisc injections...given in 3 sessions, These are given in 1 week intervals. However my last injection was a new variation called Synvisc 1. There is only 1 injection given. Answered by Jess Mickell 2 years ago.
Steroid injections have very little role in the treatment of osteoarthritis. The answer to your question should be "Tylenol (acetaminophen)." Some of the more popular steroids for joint injections, though, are Decadron (dexamethasone), Celestone (betamethasone), and Aristocort (triamcinolone). You might even be trying to recall Depo-Medrol (methylprednisolone acetate). Answered by Cassey Pierrie 2 years ago.
Dexamethasone injection for gout?
My dad had an dexamethasone injection last week because of his gout but the medication effects only last for a week.. what do you think we need to do? do he need to undergo another injection? his uric acid level is low but there's still pain.
Asked by Maranda Steinbaugh 2 years ago.
the doctor should have used a longer acting preparation such as celestone soluspan , depo-medrol, triamcinolone acetonide. all 3 remain in the joint for about 3 weeks but the effects may last several months. Answered by Roni Cezil 2 years ago.
Every person is different in their body chemistry. Some people can get months of relief, others may only get a week. You will need to wait and see. But, your best bet would be to do everything you can dietary wise to avoid any future gout flare-ups. Then, you wouldn't need an injection. Answered by Mariko Stjulian 2 years ago.
