    Prednisone injection for allergies

    Wil a prednisone injection help HORRIBLE allergies. I know these injections should not be given often, but, at this point, I need something!

    Prendisone is not usually used for allergies...its for inflammation.

    There are other shots that an allergist can give you for allergies; depending on what it is specifically you are allergic to.

    I live on the East Coast, where pollen and rag weed allergies are killing my husband; he finally broke down and went to the allergist who gave him a nose spray to use twice a day and he says it has helped allot!

    Have you seen an allergist?

    Thank you. My shot, if I should get it, would be for swelling. The vessels in my head swell so much that I cannot think. I am getting allergy injections. This is for vasomotor rhinitis. I just wonder if the prednisone is safe to take if I have not had an injection in a couple of years

    Yes, it is safe to take even more frequently than every 2 years. Have you considered a dose pack instead? It might be easier to tolerate. However, it may have a negative effect on your injections so you would need to have a chat with your immunologist about that and the timing.

    Now I understand. Thank you for explaining. Yes, steroid injections are safe. Most doctors will say up to 4 times a year...some are more conservative, but if it has been years, it is definitely safe!

    I hope they work and you feel better.
