 1  Knee Inflammation after ACL surgery Kenalog was administered to help with inflammation in my daughters knee 2mths after ACL surgery. It was her first (and only) shot sheíll ever receive. 4 days after the injection was given, my normally happy bubbly girl was very moody and down. Her face/cheeks broke out in dark red rashes just randomly, her whole body was itching. Body temperature elevated. Her period started up again 4 days after she stopped a 7 day cycle and it lasted 9 days. Most recently she developed a mild case of cold urticaria that she has never before experienced in her entire life. We discovered it after she broke out in hives from an ice pack on her knee. Iím mind blown that all of these side effects were from a simple small dose of Kenalog but everything Iíve read and people Iíve spoken to it all lines up. Iím hoping and praying that these side effects will just go away after time since she was injected with a very small dose. Itís so depressing..wish we wouldíve been well informed before agreeing to have this shot. That being said, itís helped her knee but the cons outweigh the pros here. I wouldnít do it again.

 1  Torn rotator cuff on shoulder Had a kenalog 10 shot in shoulder, to try to calm inflamation down, instead of doing surgery. Second day after, felt it go through me like a total wave. Hot red face, went up to my scalp. Put that on fire Went onto arms, legs , feet, and rear end, burning skin and numbness, and tingling. Severe neuropathy in feet, and burning lower legs. Feel crippled. I had a reaction over a year ago, had shot in my hip for a hair dye reaction. Still dealing with that issue on scalp. Now I feel like I really did my self in. Also, very dizzy. Two months out. Should have never had another shot!! Like others have said, doctors do not tell you these very dangerous side effects. I am going to John's Hopkins, or Cleveland clinic to get help. I cannot live like this!! There are other numerous things that I am dealing with from this injection, which is my bladder, feels very irritated, but I do not have a bladder infection. I have seen numerous Dr.s and they do not know how to help me. The orthopedic surgeon that gave me the shot, just looked at me and said, good luck!! I have contacted the FDA. I am also writing a long letter to them. They need to take this stuff off the market!!! F 61 1 days

 1  Daughter's eczema My daughter was prescribed this as a baby. We found out after stopping this that is was causing difficulty with holding urine at night. I was getting up at night to urinate too because I was the one applying it. My daughter wet the bed at night for years until hit his medication was stopped. It also contributed to major mood swings and depression in my daughter. Resolved when medication was stopped. It did NOT clear the rash. Essential Fatty Acid supplements and reducing sugar worked better! F 8 7 years

 1  Itchy rash Greasy, thick, slow to absorb. Usual warnings of taking steroids. This did not work for my itchy rash. Results lasted only minutes. Because it can only be used sparingly it is not an effective drug for my condition. F 32 2 days

 3  Whiplash/neck & shoulder pain I was very sore for a few days after. Could not raise my hands over my head or put my chin to my chest. My period was two weeks late then lasted 9 days. Then it quit for five days only to start up again and now I'm on my 14th day again! Bleeding will act like it is going to stop only to start up full force again. Flow also has a lot of clots. Was not aware of these side effects or would not have had it done. It hasn't been worth it. I'm tired of having a period!!! F 38 1 days

KENALOG-10  (TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE):  This medication is used in a variety of conditions such as allergic disorders, arthritis, blood diseases, breathing problems, certain cancers, eye diseases, intestinal disorders, collagen and skin diseases. Talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of triamcinolone, especially if it is to be injected near your spine (epidural). Rare but serious side effects may occur with epidural use. Triamcinolone acetonide is known as a corticosteroid hormone (glucocorticoid). It works by decreasing your body's immune response to these diseases and reduces symptoms such as swelling.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
