2nd attempt to treat with Kenolog, both times it caused a blistery rash similar to poison ivy and severe muscle cramping.

I received this injection 2 weeks ago for seasonal allergies and it did the job! I was just wondering if anyone else experienced a kind of 'high' or euphoria? I'm kind of coming off of it now-but it was sure nice while it lasted!

For years I have suffered from seasonal allergies. I tried all types of pills and sprays, but without relief. Now one shot of Kenalog during the Fall each year (I can sometimes skip a year) takes care of all my symptoms. Recent quadruple bypass did not affect the treatment. It works for me.

I have severe seasonal allergies, this last time aggravating asthma, and this shot both in the past and this time has cleared it up! For me, it is a miracle drug.

I HAVE ALWAYS HAD BAD ALLERGIES AND ASTHMA SINCE I WAS LITTLE. I WENT TO AN ALLERGIST MOST OF MY LIFE, GETTING 2 SHOTS A WEEK IN BOTH ARMS. I WAS ALSO TAKING DIFFERENT MEDICINES WHICH DID'NT WORK VERY WELL. ONE DAY SOMEONE TOLD ME ABOUT KENALOG. I'VE GOTTEN THE SHOT FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS, JUST ONE TIME A YEAR. WHAT A MAJOR RELIEF IT WAS IN MY LIFE. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE. THE ONLY THING I HEARD BAD ABOUT IT WAS IT HAD STEROIDS AND COULD CAUSE OSTEOPEROSIS. I'M NOT SURE HOW TRUE THAT IS?

I receive Kenalog injections every 3 months for back pain, bursitis, and fibromyalgia. It really dial down my pain but doesn't last the whole 3 months.

I have had the Kenalog shot twice, a year apart. My allergies and asthma were so bad that daily function was nearly impossible. The shot was fantastic for both the allergies and asthma! However, the first year I got the shot I had my period for 8 weeks solid. For the second shot I visited a new doctor who swore that the extended period had nothing to do with the shot and advised me to get it again. I got the shot again and though it again cleared up my allergies, I had my period for 10 straight weeks. It is very frustrating to me because nothing clears up my allergies/sinuses like this shot, but side effect is just too much.
