Infobox disclaimer and references

Triamcinolone acetonide is a more potent type of triamcinolone, being about 8 times as effective as prednisone. Triamcinolone acetonide should not be used by those with tuberculosis or untreated fungal, bacterial, viral or herpes infectons without consulting a doctor first. Very few side effects were noted in clinical trials. About 5% of patients had sore throats, and 2.1% suffered from increased coughing. Overdosage is improbable, and the effects of such an overdose appear to be confined to gastrointestinal upset. The maximum dosage for both adults and children (age 6-12) is 220 mcg per day.
