What Kenalog-40 is and what it is used for

The name of this medicine is Kenalog IA/IM Injection. Each injection contains triamcinolone acetonide 40 mg/ml as the active ingredient. Triamcinolone acetonide belongs to a group of medicine called corticosteroids (steroids). Kenalog IA/IM Injection is for the treatment of joint pain, swelling and stiffness in inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. It is also for the treatment of various allergic disorders including asthma, seasonal allergies, blood disorders, hormone problems, rheumatic fever, and problems associated with digestive system, kidneys, lungs or skin.

How to take Kenalog-40

The effect of the injection will vary from patient to patient and further injections may be given to you when symptoms return and not at regular intervals. The usual doses are; Use in inflammatory joint disorders: The dose of injection into a joint or tendon sheath depends upon the size of the joint to be treated and the severity of the condition which is being treated. Doses of 5-10 mg (0.125-0.25 ml) for smaller joints and up to 40 mg (1.0 ml) for larger joints usually give relief of symptoms. This medicine should not be used for injection into the Achilles tendon. Use in allergic disorders: The usual starting dose is 40 mg (1.0 ml) injected deeply into the upper outer area of the buttock. If you require a further injection, this should be made into the same area on the other buttock. Some patients with hay fever or pollen asthma find that one injection of 40-100 mg lasts throughout the pollen season. Your doctor will advise you whether it is wise for you to have further injections. Deep intramuscular injection must be given into the large muscles of the buttock and not into the upper arm or the thigh. This medicine should not be given into a vein. If you are receiving long-term intramuscular treatment with Kenalog IA/IM injection your doctor may advise you to eat more protein. This should help to reduce the gradual loss of weight that can sometimes occur with long-term treatment. Treatment with steroids is usually kept as short as possible and must not be stopped abruptly. Joints may become permanently damaged by repeated injections over a long period of time. When the treatment is stopped you may notice flu-like symptoms, runny nose or itchy eyes or skin. During times of illness or stress, patients on long-term treatment may require the addition of oral steroid tablets, or, if they have recently finished a course of Kenalog IA/IM injections, may need to start taking oral steroid tablets for a while. Mental health problems while taking Kenalog IA/IM injection Mental health problems can happen while taking steroids like Kenalog IA/IM Injection (see also section 4 Possible Side Effects).
• These illnesses can be serious.
• Usually they start within a few days or weeks of starting the medicine.

• Most of these problems go away if the dose is lowered or the medicine is stopped. However, if problems do happen they might need treatment. Talk to a doctor if you (or someone taking this medicine), shows any signs of mental health problems. This is particularly important if you are depressed, or might be thinking about suicide. In a few cases, mental health problems have happened when doses are being lowered or stopped.
