What Are The Side Effects Of Diprospan Injections?

I have lower back problems and have found Diprospan gives me excellent results. I am concerned ( since it is cortisone based) about the frequency of injections recommended . The effect usually lasts about 3/4 weeks . What side effects might I experience??
