 1  Allergies Horrible, horrible drug. I was given this for allergies and my life has been a living hell for the following three plus months. I was not given any information about the dangers of this drug. It helped my sinuses for about three days and then the ear ringing the migraine and the acute all day long anxiety attack started, and my sinuses were back to swollen shut. I already have problems with anxiety but this amplified it by about 1000. On top of the panic attacks I could barely function because I was so dizzy and discombobulated it was hard to walk straight. It honestly felt like having a two and a half month hallucination where it was impossible to focus or even connect to reality. My first period after the shot came on time but it was the most painful heavy period I have ever had in my life, and my hormones were so off balance I thought I was going crazy. My following period started a week early and over a month later now it still hasn't stopped. The dilerium eased up after about two and a half months, but the anxiety and depression are still out of control, my period won't stop, I am having trouble with stomach pain and difficulty going to the bathroom, and it left a huge dent in my arm. It has now been over three months and I'm still suffering from side effects. Please do not take this horrible drug unless you will die without it. It will ruin your life. F 39 0 days

 1  Eczema I've had Kenalog 40 mg on November 2020, since then my period is a mess! It won't stop bleeding and now it's January 2021. Fatigue, depression (crying most of the time), sucide thoughts, severe pain in my bones, problems in breathing And the eczema didn't go away completely, still have some itchy spots. The doctor who gave it to me didn't tell me any of these sides effects could happen neither he gave me the choice not to take it. He said it's the only treatment for my severe eczema. I'm really tired of this situation, and wonder for how long these side effects will stay!? F 41 1 days

 1  Allergies/asthma About a day or two after I got the shot, my blood sugar spiked causing me to go pee 3-6 times a night every night. And now three weeks later I'm having trouble breathing and can't take a deep breath. This is by far the dumbest thing I've been pressured into. I can't wait for this crap to be out of my system. Just don't do it. The side effects aren't worth it. M 36 1 days

 1  Metal allergy test reaction Started as a pit that is gradually getting deeper. Shot was given near shoulder blade. There is no fat or muscle there now just a sunken pit. I weighted 127 ate a healthy normal diet and exercised regularly the day I received the kenalog 40 injection in Feb 2020. May I sent the person that gave the shot an email asking if it could be evaluated. I was told it would go away but could take up to 4 months. Now it's October and the pit is deeper. I've suffered hair loss, weight gain, sever back pain, all over muscle atrophy and anxiety and recently had an abnormal EKG. I emailed provider again and was told the side effects were mild and the things I was experiencing was not sure to injection. That I need to make an appointment with a pcp and could go to a dermatologist for fillers. Another injection of anything is the last thing I want and an ugly sunken pit is the least of my worries. I was never told beforehand what the injection was or warned of any side effects so that I could make an informed decision to have this shot. Does anything reverse the horrible effects? F 49 1 days

 1  Rotator cuff impingement This injection, given by THIS particular surgeon, has absolutely RUINED my right shoulder/ arm/ cervical spine. I had some aching in the right deltoid muscle, as I have for the last ten years. I was injected and within 12 hours, both hands went numb. Within 36 hours,I felt a tremendous pop, followed by excruciating pain and weakness! The MRI, 3 days later, showed a full thickness tear. I endured multiple tears the following weeks. The surgeon wanted to give me, yet, another injection!! I profusely declined much to his ignorant dismay. I've been in so much pain. I insisted on a second MRI...I am no stranger to pain. I've had 30 surgeries, all athletic, since I was 13 years old. My second MRI showed massive tears! Two surgeons have recommended a shoulder replacement. I went from an aching deltoid to a shoulder replacement within a few months! I'm sorry, this doesn't happen. No doctor on earth can make me believe that this medication did not somehow cause this unbelievable progression of damage. I simply raised my arm to brush my hair!! A lifetime of tennis balls, weights, basketball, etc... and these tears occur within 36 hours after a kenalog injection... brushing my hair??.. really? NOW, the hardware in my cervical spine is burning and apparently pinching on nerves running down into my shoulder and arm. The medical field does NOT care! You have to have cancer, no disrespect to those who do, to get any pain relief. DO NOT accept this medication. It is poison! Should be banned! F 61 1 days

KENALOG-40  (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)
