    Can anyone give me a suggestion on how to find inexpensive Celestone?

    I've been using Depomedrol since the new FDA labeling on Kenalog. Most patients do fine with Depomedrol epidurals, but I've noticed there is a small subset of patients that don't tolerate Depomedrol, but do tolerate ESI with Celestone.

    The problem is that Celestone is expensive. I get Depomedrol for $7 per 80mg, but haven't found Celestone for cheaper than $30 per 12mg.

    Can anyone point me to their supplier for inexpensive Celestone? I'm okay with generic Celestone manufactured by a major pharmaceutical company, just not compounded celestone by some small outfit.

    Thanks guys........he wrote sarcastically.

    I did hear from Steve via PM.

    I guess no one else on the forum uses Celestone/generic betamethasone?
