Q. When will I feel better after taking Triamcinolone?

Triamcinolone effectively treats pain and inflammation. However, its effect may vary from person to person, depending on the condition you are being treated for and also your body weight. Your doctor will prescribe you Triamcinolone in the dose that suits your requirement. Do not alter your dose thinking that a higher dose will provide faster relief.

Consult your doctor if you do not see improvement in your condition even after completing the full course of treatment.

Q. What if I forget to take a dose of Triamcinolone?

If you forget a dose of Triamcinolone, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the next scheduled dose in the prescribed time. Do not double the dose to make up for the missed one as this may increase the chances of developing side effects.
