Mel; Yes this is fine it is a type of cortisone used for normally about a week to get the shoulder going again by taking the inflammation out and help the pain. The only time to worry is if this is taken on a long term basis. Did this come in a pack of 7 days and you take one roll per day for the 6 or 7 days that is the most common one but sometimes they may use different ones just the main thing is to take it exactly as the doctor has prescribed it. Hope you get to feeling better
I really like Chuck's answer.
One thing I'd like to add is getting physical therapy along with the shots if your doctor thinks it's ok.
I had the shots in my knee and I don't think I would have done as well with the shots alone.
