Hi

A Happy New Year to you All

Can you tell me as a guide how many of the Depo Medrone Injections you can have?

My Rheumy doctors are happy to give me these injections as they are having trouble getting my arthritis under control. I have 3 different types of aurthur.

Can your body get used to these and loose their effectiveness at all?

Thank You Trisher xx

    Hi Trisher
    Happy New Year to you too.
    There isn't really a limit to the number of Depo Medrone injections you can have though if you were to have a lot of them - say every few weeks - over a long period of time, you might get some of the side effects of long term steroids. They can be a useful additional drug when doctors are trying to control arthritis but talk to your rheumy if you feel concerned about the amount you are having.
    They should remain effective and doctors usually give the lowest possible dose that controls your symptoms.
    Best wishes
