Did you know injections of corticoid preparations can have severe side effects. In 278 cases of complications after corticoid injections, medical errors were found to have been committed in 40% of cases as reported in the Deutsches Arzteblatt International medical journal in July 2012. Typical errors include faulty asepsis, treatment without indication, and injections that were too closely spaced in time or in excessive doses.
Be sure when you are getting any sort of injection to ask questions if you feel the need. Remember Doctor means Teacher in Latin and it is appropriate for you to be educated and look out for you and yours.
Have a blessed day folks!
