The advent of new injectable medications such as Clonidine, a drug originally used for high blood pressure, and Wydnase, a protein which can dissolve scar tissue, have allowed epidural procedures to be at the forefront of modern pain management programs.
Anyone read about this yet? Had it done? Is it a steroid or used in place of?
Clonidine is not a steroid but what is called an "alpha agonist"--something like a beta blocker, but it works on other receptors. I haven't heard anything about its being used in injections for spine issues.
I don't know the other drug, although some other drug names than end in "ase" are, indeed, steroids.
