How Does Triamcinolone Work?
The Triamcinolone drug works by stopping your body from producing hormones or substances that trigger inflammation.
It does this by imitating natural steroids in your system that prevent an overactive immune system response. As a result, you should see less redness and swelling in specific areas of your body if you suffer from certain conditions.
What Is Triamcinolone Used For?
As previously mentioned, Triamcinolone is largely used to treat auto-immune conditions affecting the skin or mouth. This can make it useful for a variety of issues, such as:
- Mouth ulcers
- Persistent rashes
It will work to reduce redness, itching, and swelling in any of these conditions.
What Are the Side Effects of Triamcinolone?
Common side effects of Triamcinolone include:
- Mood swings
- Shortness of breath
- Weight gain through water retention
- Difficulties sleeping
- Mild dizziness
- Increased anxiety
It’s important to note that you might not see any of these side effects as each person varies. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t be worried if they do occur as they are mild. Many people experience them while using Triamcinolone, but they typically subside within a few hours or days.
At the same time, there are some less common side effects of Triamcinolone that carry more severity:
- Blood in your stools
- Rapid heart rate
- Excessive shortness of breath
- Excessive dizziness coupled with blurred vision
- Weak muscles
If you suffer from any of the severe side effects above, you should stop taking Triamcinolone and speak to a qualified medical professional. Likewise, if the minor side effects get worse or don’t go away, you should talk to a doctor and possibly consider lowering your dosage.
How to Take Triamcinolone?
Triamcinolone is available in different forms which will impact how it is taken. Your doctor will explain which type of drug is the best for you, and they will also detail how to take it and what dosage you should use.
Most patients will receive topical Triamcinolone in the form of a cream, ointment, or spray. This will usually be applied to wet skin as per your dosage requirements.
If you receive the dental paste to treat mouth ulcers or issues around the mouth, you’ll have to apply a thin slither to the afflicted area. It is best to do this at night before going to bed, and you should avoid rubbing the paste in as it won’t be absorbed properly.
Don’t be afraid to consult with your doctor if you have difficulties taking Triamcinolone. Likewise, if you fail to see any improvements in your skin conditions within a few weeks, speak to your doctor and they can try alternative treatments or a higher dose.
