Side Effects of Triamcinolone Nasal Spray

Some of the most common side effects of triamcinolone nasal spray that were seen in clinical studies included cough, nosebleeds, and sore throat. Some side effects only occur rarely, but are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to a healthcare provider. Contact your healthcare provider if you experience such triamcinolone nasal spray side effects such as an allergic reaction, frequent and severe nosebleeds, or wheezing.

An Introduction to Side Effects of Triamcinolone Nasal Spray

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with triamcinolone nasal spray (Nasacort® AQ, Nasacort® Allergy 24HR). However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with triamcinolone nasal spray. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of triamcinolone nasal spray side effects with you.)

Common Side Effects of Triamcinolone Nasal Spray

Triamcinolone nasal spray has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which the side effects of a group of people taking the drug are documented and compared to another group taking a placebo (a nasal spray with no active ingredients). As a result, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
In these studies, the most common side effects of triamcinolone nasal spray in adults and adolescents included:
  • Sore throat -- in up to 5.1 percent of people
  • Nosebleeds -- up to 2.7 percent
  • Cough -- up to 2.1 percent.
In younger children (age 2 to 12), other common reactions, occurring in 2 percent to 9 percent of children, included:
  • The flu
  • Increased coughing
  • Sore throat
  • Bronchitis
  • Stomach pain
  • Tooth problems (not specified)
  • Headache
  • Diarrhea
  • Asthma
  • Nosebleeds
  • Rash
  • Runny nose.
Many of the "side effects" in children were only slightly more common with the drug than with the placebo.
