RMTC FAQ Series Q: What is the recommended withdraw time for corticosteroid use IM, SQ, or in the sacroiliac space? A: When using corticosteroids IM, SQ or in the sacroilliac space – the veterinarian and trainer are encouraged to perform a risk assessment regarding the time recommended for withdrawal based upon the dose and formulation of corticosteroid used. The appropriate time will be largely dependent upon dose, location, and corticosteroid of choice. There are published research articles regarding methylprednisolone acetate and triamcinolone acetonide that should assist the veterinarian in determining what may be an appropriate withdrawal time. Furthermore, there is an RMTC recommended time for SQ use of isoflupredone when injected into the high suspensory. #RMTC The Arabian Jockey Club is a fervent supporter of the efforts of the Racing Medication & Testing Consortium.
