Guys, a week ago I was given a steroid jab to bring down the inflammation in my joints.

I was wondering, how long would the steroid jab remain in my system? I'm not on any steroid pills at all.

Thanks

In my experience, it depends on what kind you were given, some are long acting-up to 6 wks., some are short acting and out of your system in a hurry. I **think** if I remember what my Dr. said, when I got an injection of solumedrol it was a short acting steroid, out of my system in a few days. Today I got an injection of Kenalog-40, I was told this is longer lasting. If you can remember the type/name of the shot, then maybe you can look it up online to see when it will take effect, and how long it will last.
