OVERDOSE

There are no data available on the effects of acute or chronic overdose. However, acute overdosing with Azmacort (triamcinolone acetonide (inhalation aerosol)) Inhalation Aerosol is unlikely in view of the total amount of active ingredient present and the route of administration. The maximum total daily dose (1200 mcg) has been well tolerated when administered as a single dose of 16 consecutive inhalations to adult asthmatics in a controlled clinical trial. Chronic overdosage may result in signs/symptoms of hypercorticoidism. (See PRECAUTIONS.) The risk of candidiasis could also be increased.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Azmacort (triamcinolone acetonide (inhalation aerosol)) Inhalation Aerosol is contraindicated in the primary treatment of status asthmaticus or other acute episodes of asthma where intensive measures are required.

Hypersensitivity to triamcinolone acetonide or any of the other ingredients in this preparation contraindicates its use.

This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
