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.

Chronic overdosage may result in signs/symptoms of hypercorticoidism. (See PRECAUTIONS.) The risk of candidiasis could also be increased.

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.
