Triamcinolone Acetonide - Overview
Triamcinolone acetonide ointment, marketed under brand names such as Kenalog, is a topical cream used to treat medical conditions such as allergies, psoriasis and eczema. Push Health connects people who need a triamcinolone acetonide cream prescription with licensed medical providers who can prescribe triamcinolone medication, including triamcinolone ointment and triamcinolone cream, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream Used For?
Triamcinolone, like desoximetasone, is a type of medication known as a synthetic corticosteroid medication. Triamcinolone creams are absorbed by the skin and exert anti-inflammatory and anti-itching effects. Triamcinolone works by activating specific glucocorticoid receptors which ultimately reduce the synthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes - chemicals that increase the inflammatory response. Triamcinolone prescription medication also inhibits the production of cytokines. Because of these effects, triamcinolone ointment is frequently prescribed for treating conditions like psoriasis. In function, triamcinolone acts similarly to other steroid medications such as the Medrol Dosepak (methylprednisolone) and prednisone (Rayos).
Triamcinolone Cream - Dosage and Cost
Triamcinolone ointment is available as triamcinolone 0.025% cream, triamcinolone 0.1% cream and triamcinolone 0.5% cream. The absorption of triamcinolone varies from person to person. Triamcinolone cream can be absorbed through healthy skin although the absorption pharmacokinetics can be influenced by the integrity of the epidermis and the use of occlusive dressings. Triamcinolone cream is considered an affordable medication. Triamcinolone 0.1% cream costs under $4 for a 15 gram tube. The cost of a triamcinolone ointment prescription may be covered by some insurance plans. Triamcinolone coupons may also be available online at times to help reduce any out-of-pockets costs associated with a prescription. Triamcinolone cream should generally be stored at room temperature and should not be frozen.
Can I Buy Triamcinolone Acetonide Online?
Triamcinolone acetonide is a prescription medication and, as a result, is not available as triamcinolone OTC (over-the-counter). The first step to getting a triamcinolone prescription is consulting with a medical provider before one can buy triamcinolone online. People who need a triamcinolone cream prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe triamcinolone medication, including triamcinolone acetonide cream 0.1% and triamcinolone ointment, when appropriate to do so.
Triamcinolone Acetonide - Side Effects
Triamcinolone, like other medications, can cause side effects. Triamcinolone side effects include burning, itching, irritation, dermatitis and skin atrophy. Triamcinolone medication should be used cautiously as it can cause HPA axis suppression and hyperglycemia. Triamcinolone acetonide and alcohol should not be used together. Questions about side effects related to triamcinolone use should be directed to one's medical provider and pharmacist. Triamcinolone prescription medication should not be used by people who have a known hypersensitivity to triamcinolone medication or similar drugs.
