Corticosteroids And Anesthetics For Spinal Disc Pain (Cortisone Injections, Epidurals And Oral Steroids): Drug Interactions

Dr. Ron Daulton, Jr.

I’ve created a chart below that shows the medications that Corticosteroids and Anesthetics can potentially interact with. I thought this would be easier because you’ll notice that a lot of the drugs are the same. In order for this chart to fit on the page, I had to abbreviate the names of the medications, so here is the key:

If you are taking any of these medications together, you should discuss it with your doctor immediately. Please do not stop taking any medications without speaking to your doctor about it first.

In addition to that, this is not a complete list of the possible drug interactions that can occur (these are the most common ones). However, I’ve tried to be as thorough and complete as possible. So it’s important that you speak with your doctor or pharmacist about any potential interactions that could take place with the medications you are taking.

Do not take any of these medications with alcohol.
