For Inflammatory Conditions “Never take this drug. I am a healthy individual that had a bad experience with this drug. I Received one shot because I had the flu. 1 week later I had burning pains running all through my body. They gave me a shot in my butt and its still sore 2 sweeks later. I had trouble sleeping, couldn’t breath at night and thought I was going crazy. My resting heart rate went from 49-58 beats a minute. I don’t know what this drug does to the body but its not good. You have mood swings from anger, confusion, weakness, coordination etc….. Please ask the doctor what they are giving you before they inject you. It could do more harm than good later.”

For Inflammatory Conditions “I have degenerative discs. I was given injections of Decadron near the area. Within a week I almost went crazy!! Felt like I was running for my life all the time. The doctors have no clue what this does to your brain, nor how to reverse its affects.Do not take this.”

For Inflammatory Conditions “I was given this for a migraine, via iv . Instantly starting between my legs and moving out through my body I felt like my entire body was set on fire. I had difficulty breathing and was screaming and sobbing. Needless to say none of which helped the severe migraine that had landed me in the Er. Two days later my vaginal tissue still feels inflamed.I won’t be taking this one again.”
