"An estimated half a million epinephrine autoinjectors are coming off the market. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising patients to call their doctor for an alternative, but some say there won't be enough supply to meet the demand."...
Like any other nasally administered corticosteroid, acute overdosing is unlikely in view of the total amount of active ingredient present. In the event that the entire contents of the bottle were administered all at once, via oral or nasal application, clinically significant adverse events would likely not result. The patient may experience some gastrointestinal upset. Chronic overdosage with any corticosteroid may result in signs or symptoms of hypercorticism (see PRECAUTIONS).
AllerNaze (triamcinolone acetonide nasal spray) is contraindicated in patients with a hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
