I would love to add that special ingredient which is "safe" and reliably gives a sensory block for more than 24 hours. Is that Decadron? Is it "safe"? Where is the data supporting safety in all patient populations? Do you use preservative free Decadron or "regular" 30 cent Decadron? How much is best for a Diabetic? 4 mg? 6mg? Does Decadron promote Second crush neuronal injury? Which is safer? Depo-Medrol or Decadron?
