Generic Name:Triamcinolone

U Tri Lone is an injection prescribed to treat various conditions, such as asthma attacks, allergies, arthritis, and various skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The medication comes in several forms, carrying triamcinolone as the active ingredient in it your doctor may inject a shot of anesthetic into your shoulder to help find out whether the limited movement is caused by pain or weakness. If the anesthetic relieves the pain and allows you to move your shoulder normally, the diagnosis is most likely some form of rotator cuff disease. Your doctor may then inject U Tri Lone into the area to reduce inflammation. However, if your shoulder is still weak after the injection of anesthetic, the problem is probably a rotator cuff tear.

U Tri Lone injections help relieve pain and inflammation in the shoulder due to tendinitis or bursitis in or around the rotator cuff. They usually are used after other treatment such as rest, ice or heat, no steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and physical therapy has failed to improve the problem.
