Joint injections (kenalog vs depo-medrol

Nurses Medications



I work in an ortho clinic. I was asked to research about kenalog and depo-medrol to be used for joint injections (knee, hip, shoulders and hands).

Which one is better? Which one lasts longer? Which one works faster? Which one has great benefits?

Please advice and thank you in advance!

LOL! I was at the ortho yesterday and had a hand injection. Into the joint at the bottom of the thumb really. I didn't think to ask them which med and why. Sorry. If I had only seen this before I went.
