it's supposed to be a steroid, used for arthritis ## I think you are talking about Synvisc ? ## Thank you, Paul! I was going to ask the same thing, since it is commonly listed as Synvisc One. It contains the active ingredient hyaluronan, which is a substance that is naturally present in our joints, so the injection is used to help replace it and alleviate arthritic symptoms. The FDA warns that its side effects may include administration site irritation, redness, and pain. Can you please double check the name and clarify?2 REPLIES Updated
my wife is diabetic. she had the 3 synvisc injections one week apart. after the second injection her blood sugar dropped by about 20%. after the third shot her blood sugar dropped another 20%. she takes 1 injection of lantus per day. she has had to reduce this by 75%. we cant find any information on synvisc changing a persons blood sugar level and dont know if the events are related ## I've done more searching and so far, I've found one mention of another women having low blood sugar after starting Synvisc, but she had quite a few health problems going on, so it was never actually definitively tied to this medication. Learn more Synvisc details here. Has anything else changed, such as her diet, or other medications? ## I had a shot of SynVisc yesterday and my BG is 3x higher tha...2 REPLIES Updated

Learn more Synvisc details here. So there might be some other reason behind it. Has she changed anything else about her lifestyle recently? Such as her diet, other medications, getting more exercise?1 REPLY Updated
what is cockscomb? is it the same as Synvisc? ## Based on my research, there are no medications that have the name "cockscomb". The term "cockscomb" refers to a type of plant/flower that grows in warm, humid, tropical conditions. From what I can tell, it doesn't have any medicinal uses. You can view detailed information about Synvisc by following the link below: Neither of these have any relation to each other, but please do post back if you have any other questions or comments about these two subjects.1 REPLY Updated
My wife has an arthiritic knee and has been advised SYNVISC injections ( 6 ml), to be repeated three times. How effective is the treatment? Moreover does it help regeneration of cartilage tissues. ## Yes, it can help with the regeneration, but like any drug, it depends on the individual, some people get great benefits from it and some do not. ## Thanks for the quick response . Regards ## Very welcome! ## Anti-anxiety,Sedative or may be anti-depressent medicine. ## Sorry, if you are looking for information on a drug with the name Saltopam, then I cannot help you, there is nothing listed under that name. ## Satopam advice was a spam response and not our query at all. Thanks for your interest.6 REPLIES Updated
