All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects. Check with your doctor if any of these most common side effects persist or become bothersome when using Cortisone:
Dizziness or lightheadedness; indigestion, could be the side effects of cortisone.
Please seek medical attention for conditions that you feel such as change in taste, feeling like metal taste in the mouth & specially pain at the injection site, the doc who prescribed the injection should be the best person to address this question & provide remedies, hope it helps, take care & be well!
