Cortisone Overview

Cortisone (/krtson/ or /krtzon/), also known as 17α,21-dihydroxypregn-4-ene-3,11,20-trione, is a pregnane (21-carbon) steroid hormone.

for chest congestion flu sumptoms, possible asthma. ## In the pollen season I have very bad eczema in my face, swollen eyes, elephant man skin etc. When it is so bad that I cant handle the itching anymore I get a diprospan shot. In stand relieve. After two days the skin of my face is smooth and soft, no redness, swelling etc. The diprospan normally helps for 4 weeks (that’s the first shot in the season) but I noticed that I get used to it because now the itching starts already after 2 weeks. Its written that you can have a shot every week if necessary but I am a bit scared to do that, after all its cortisone. ## I understand your concerns, but unfortunately, with severe allergic reactions, steroids are quite often the only solution. It is normal that after a certain period of time...

what ingredients are in a cordizone injection for joint pain
4 Replies RSS
I was told I was being injected with cordizone and found out it was 4 cc"s of lidicaine and one other ingredient. Is lidacaine normally in a cordizone shot? ## Hello, Stephen! How are you? Cortisone should contain exactly that, it is classified by the FDA as a corticosteroid that is used to alleviate inflammation. Your doctor may use it with Lidocaine, because it is a local anesthetic that can help relieve pain, until the steroid has a chance to work. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including administration site irritation, redness, swelling and headache. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am the person who thought he was getting cortisone and found that the injection given was 4 c c's Lidocaine and the mystery ingredient I found was Kenalog? My reac...

Looking for pain management doctor Ashland or Klamath Falls OR area?
7 Replies RSS
Does anyone know of a good pain management doctor in the Ashland or Klamath Falls OR area? I am new to the area and need to transfer from my current doctor over 1000 miles away as quickly as possible. I am more than welcome to continue treatment with their office, but between the $$ for traveling and the pain the length of the trip would cause I really need to find someone closer. I am willing to travel as far north as Portland OR or as far south as San Francisco CA if needed as long as the doctors are experienced in Chronic Pain management. Everyone I've called has not been taking new patients and has referred me to the next one who has the same issue. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have been seeing the same doctor for over 10 years and had no idea it would be this ...

mazon cream
58 Replies RSS
for eczema, psoriasis- seeping, cracking, blistering skin- I personally used it from the age of 6 mos. in 1955 to 1988, then it disappeared from shelves- it was an over the counter cream and it really worked. At the age of 3 months my skin would swell, crack and seep a clear liquid- a pediatrician introduced the cream to my mother and at the time they had a bar soap, shampoo and cream-of which I used occasionally over the course of 30 years then all of a sudden it disappeared. I did have part of a jar I used sparingly and guarded with my life and I called the company that made the cream and they said that they took the recipe out of circulation. The jar is long gone- sadly and I do not know the name of the pharmaceutical company that originally made it. I now am entering menopause and m...

family doctor prescribing pain meds western north carolina
3 Replies RSS
Hi, I am a disabled single mom, and have been seeing a family doctor who prescribes my pain meds along with everything else. I have a progressive disease I was born with in my spine, and 5 other conditions related to this. The reason I would like to stay with a family doctor is that I don't have the time and money to run all over the area and go to doctor's appts everyday of the week. The office I have been going to, I've now been switched to my 3rd student doctor in 3 years and they've done an across the board change in their pain med policy. They don't care that they aren't treating individual patients needs. My quality of life has gone backwards about 8 years and they have cut my medications to half of what I was taking when I was pregnant. I'm on medicare...

Betaclav 1000mg and cortisone side effects
2 Replies RSS
My 13 yr old son was given Betaclav 1000mg twice a day and pulmision 20mg twice a day for 5 days for a sinus infection. It is making him feel worse with nausea, headaches and weakness. Must I stop his course or continue? ## Those can be normal side effects of these medications, according to the NIH, but he should continue taking them, unless his doctor instructs otherwise. He may also experience diarrhea, stomach pain, acne, and non-allergic skin rash. How is he doing? Has there been any change? ## He completed the course yesterday and today he seems slightly better although still nausea and lots of mucus in the tubes. His head still feels fuzzy, can feel mucus draining down his throat. Do I need to go back to the doc or you think he is on the mend?

In RI, "pain Management is considered as Cortisone shots & maybe Lidocaine, etc. These meds become ineffective over time & can cause irepairable damage. What is the alternative?
