Re: Quarterzone Injections

Corticosteroids - are steriod hormones secreted by the cortex (outer part) of the adrenal glands, or are synthetic substances that closely resemble the natural forms.

Corticosteroids preperations should be used with caution because the cortisone diminishes your natural immune response to the infective agent. Absorption of a hign dose of cortisone over a long period of time may also cause undesirable, systemic side affects.

some know side effects include:

hypertension, sodium and water retention, and potassium loss.

Withdrawal of treatment MUST be gradual.


Hope this gives an insite for you. - remember consult your doctor

(this information is given as a guide only and in no way replaces advice and information given by your GP.)


cheers,

Philbie

Re: Quarterzone Injections

I've had 12 shots of this previously, the only pain part was the actual injection, had to go into my shoulder socket, part from that there is no pain involved, I found there to be no side effects with this treatment,

Re: Quarterzone Injections

It isn't too bad. The worst part for me was when i saw the needle on the cat scan as they were sticking it in. You sorta see it pushing against the fluid sack in your shoulder and then it pushes through. Don't drive yourself to the doctors though. Best thing i could relate to is getting tetanus shot (with the biggest needle i've ever seen) hehehe good luck.

Re: Quarterzone Injections

I usually have to take corticosteroids every year after i get a chest infection due to athsma. I find that if I stay on them too long I start to get the crazies and quiet murmurings like voices in my head :)
I tend to take high doses and then cut it out after 3 days instead of tapering it out as that stops the side effects. Occasionally that method of taking it doesn't fix the infections but it is a hell of a lot better than talking to yourself
The acid flashback dreams are cool though
I am sure that wont happen to you though *grins*

Re: Quarterzone Injections

I Have just had my 3rd injection in months and seem to be suffering side effects such as dry mouth and flue like simptoms. The injections them selves where not to much of a problem. OH except when I seen the size if the needle comming. Has any one has side effects like me?

Re: Quarterzone Injections

I have had them before and not suffered any of the effects that you have. Where are you getting the injections?. Mine were in my foot.
