Triamcinolone for Asthma
The triamcinolone inhaler (Azmacort®) is a prescription asthma medication that is no longer being produced. It belonged to a class of medications known as inhaled corticosteroids (steroids for short) and was prescribed to prevent asthma attacks.
In clinical studies, people using this product showed improvements in their asthma symptoms, compared to those not using it. In addition, people already taking oral steroids for asthma were able to decrease their use of rescue inhalers for asthma attacks.
