A Drug Similar to Kenalog That Begins With the Letter D
Posted over a year ago
Is Dexamethasone the same or very similar to the drug, Kenalog, used for allergies?
Nurse_amber - They are both corticosteroids, the main uses are to decrease inflammation. Kenalog is the brand name for triamcinolone, which is shorter acting. Dexamethasone has many brand names and is longer acting. I have usually seen dexamethasone used for rashes (poison oak etc), asthma and Kenalog seems to be used more often for autoimmune disorders (arthritis etc) or severe seasonal allergies.
