    What is TriamTabs - Triamcinolone Acetonide 1 Tab?

    Triamcinolone acetonide is a highly potent synthetic glucocorticoid and inflammation treatment for acute arthritis and some allergy and skin conditions (eg. Atopy) . It’s advantage over the older corticoids lies in its ability to achieve equal anti-inflammatory effect with a lower dose.

    Dogs and Cats

    Why use TriamTabs - Triamcinolone Acetonide 1 Tab?

    - May be used to treat immune and allergic disorders in dogs and cats
    - Used to treat asthma, colitis, lupus, gout, bursitis, and various skin conditions.
    - May be used to treat inflammation, alleviate pain and lameness associated with arthritic conditions.

    How does TriamTabs - Triamcinolone Acetonide 1 Tab work?

    Glucocorticoids not only inhibit the early phases of the inflammatory process (edema, fibrin deposition, capillary dilation, migration of leukocytes into the inflamed area and phagocytic activity) but also the later manifestations (capillary proliferation, fibroblast proliferation and deposition of collagen). The exact mechanism is not known, but the glucocorticoids obviously suppress normal tissue response to injury and alleviate symptoms from many conditions. As with other adrenal steroids, triamcinolone acetonide has been found useful in alleviating the pain and lameness associated with acute localized arthritic conditions and generalized arthritic conditions. Glucocorticoids have been used successfully to treat traumatic arthritis, osteoarthritis and generalized arthritic conditions in dogs. Remission of musculoskeletal conditions may be permanent, or symptoms may recur, depending on the cause and extent of structural degeneration.

    What are the side effects of TriamTabs - Triamcinolone Acetonide 1 Tab?

    As with the use of any corticosteroid, side effects and metabolic alterations can be anticipated when treatment is intensive or prolonged. In animals with diabetes mellitus, use of triamcinolone acetonide may be associated with an increase in the insulin requirement. Negative nitrogen balance may occur, particularly in animals that require protracted maintenance therapy.

    What special precautions are there?

    Use of corticosteroids may result in the inhibition of endogenous steroid production which sometimes persist for weeks following drug withdrawal. In patients presently receiving or recently withdrawn from corticosteroid treatments, administration of a rapid acting corticosteroid before, during and after an unusually stressful situation is recommended.

    What to do if overdose?

    DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: The keystone of satisfactory therapeutic management with triamcinolone acetonide, as with other steroids, is individualization of dosage in reference to the severity of the disease, the anticipated duration of steroid therapy and the animal's threshold or tolerance for steroid excess. The prime objective of steroid therapy should be to achieve satisfactory degree of control with a minimum effective dose.
    The initial suppressive dose level of 0.5-1.0 mg per 10 pounds of body weight daily should be administered until a satisfactory clinical response is obtained, a period not to exceed 14 days. If a satisfactory response is not obtained in 14 days, re-evaluation of the case to confirm the original diagnosis should be made. As soon as a satisfactory clinical response is obtained, the daily dose should be reduced gradually, either to termination of treatment in the case of acute conditions (e.g. seasonal asthma, dermatitis, acute ocular inflammations) or to the minimal effective maintenance dose level in the case of chronic conditions (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis).
    Symptoms of adrenal insufficiency following withdrawal may persist for several days, weeks or years. Some cases have resulted in death. To minimize the adverse effects from withdrawal or reduction in dosage, cautiously decrease dosage in a gradual manner. In dogs, dosing in the morning may also be beneficial in minimizing effects because nocturnal pituitary/adrenal activity will be less inhibited. In chronic conditions, and in rheumatoid arthritis especially, it is important that the reduction in dosage from initial to maintenance dose levels be accomplished slowly. The maintenance dose level should be adjusted from time to time as required by fluctuation in the activity of the disease and the animal's general status. Maintenance dosage levels of 0.125-0.25 mg per 10 pounds of body weight daily are recommended. Accumulated experience has shown that the long-term benefits to be gained from continued steroid maintenance are probably greater the lower the maintenance dose level. In rheumatoid arthritis in particular, maintenance steroid therapy should be at the lowest possible level.
     
    IMPORTANT: In the therapeutic management of animals with chronic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, triamcinolone should be regarded as a highly valuable adjunct, to be used in conjunction with but not a replacement for standard therapeutic measures.
