Receiving Kenalog IA/IM Injection
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 pollen asthma find that one injection of 40- 100 mg improves asthmatic symptoms
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.
What you need to know before you are given Kenalog IA/IM Injection
Do not receive Kenalog IA/IM Injection if; • You have had an allergic reaction to a similar medicine or any of the ingredients in this medicine. See section 6 for full list of ingredients • You are suffering from an infection unless your doctor has also prescribed a treatment for the infection.

Refer to list of medicines mentioned in “Taking other medicines with Adcortyl IA/ID Injection.” • If you have ever had severe depression or manic-depression (bipolar disorder). This includes having had depression before while taking steroid medicines like Kenalog IA/IM Injection. • If any of your close family has had these illnesses.
