Triamcinolone Inhaler

The triamcinolone inhaler is a prescription drug that is used for preventing asthma attacks. By reducing inflammation in the airways, the medication can help prevent asthma attacks from occurring. The triamcinolone inhaler comes in the form of a metered-dose inhaler that is taken two to four times per day. The dose of the triamcinolone inhaler your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including your age, the severity of your asthma, and other medications you may be taking. Possible side effects of this product include headache, sore throat, and sinus infection.

What Is the Triamcinolone Inhaler?

The triamcinolone inhaler (Azmacort®) is a prescription medication used to prevent asthma attacks.
 
As of December 2009, the manufacturer of the triamcinolone inhaler decided to stop making it in order to comply with regulations concerning chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), chemicals that may deplete the ozone layer. Had the triamcinolone inhaler been a more popular drug, the manufacturer would probably have chosen to reformulate the drug without CFCs, instead of just discontinuing it. Any unexpired triamcinolone inhalers still in pharmacies may be dispensed until December 31, 2010, after which they can no longer be sold in the United States.
