Triamcinolone belongs to a group of medicines known as corticosteroids. These act inside the cells to decrease the release of certain chemicals that are important in the immune system. By decreasing the release of these chemicals in a particular area, inflammation and mucus secretion is reduced.
Triamcinolone is given as a nasal spray to treat and prevent the inflammation that occurs due to allergies. This inflammation forces fluid out of the nasal tissues causing runny and blocked noses.

Nasacort AQ Directions To Use
To get the most benefit from Nasacort, make sure you understand how to use the nasal spray properly. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to demonstrate the correct way to use a nasal spray. Shake well before using. Nasacort must reach the nasal tissue to be effective. Therefore, blow your nose to clear the nasal passage before using Nasacort. If passages are blocked, a nasal decongestant may be used first (for a maximum of 3 to 5 days) to open the passages allowing proper penetration of Nasacort. Be sure to aim spray away from the middle of the nose, that is, away from the nasal septum and toward the inflamed areas inside the nasal passages. Use this medication exactly as prescribed. It must be used routinely to be effective. Do not increase your dose or use this more frequently than directed without your doctor's approval. It may take a few days before the benefits of Nasacort are noticed. If after 2 to 3 weeks no improvement in symptoms is noticed, consult your doctor. Use Nasacort with caution if sores or injuries are present in the nasal passages.
