Answer

Corticosteroids

Corticosteroids have anti-inflammatory properties and cause profound and varied metabolic effects. They modify the body’s immune response to diverse stimuli.

Triamcinolone (Kenalog, Aristospan Intra-articular)

Triamcinolone decreases inflammation by suppressing migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) and reversing capillary permeability.

Methylprednisolone (Depo-Medrol, Solu-Medrol, Medrol)

Methylprednisolone decreases inflammation by suppressing migration of PMNs and reversing increased capillary permeability.

Betamethasone (Celestone, Celestone Soluspan)

Betamethasone decreases inflammation by suppressing migration of PMNs and reversing increased capillary permeability.
