Can I take other medicines with joint injections?

Yes, you can take other medicines with steroid injections. An exception to this is if you have been prescribed a blood thinning drug, or anticoagulant. These include drugs such as warfarin and heparin. If you are taking any blood thinning medication, before your appointment, you may need to have an extra blood test to ensure that your blood is not too thin. If your blood is too thin, you run the risk of bleeding into the joint when you have the injection. Please let one of our Patient Care Advisors know that you are taking anticoagulants when you book your appointment, as you may be advised to adjust the dosage before having the treatment.
