Certain people should not use triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension or should consult with a doctor before taking it. Anyone who is allergic to triamcinolone or has a current fungal infection should avoid using it. Also, it should be used with caution in people with certain medical conditions, including those who have had a heart attack, thyroid disorder, stomach problems, intestinal worms, infections (fungal, viral or bacterial), muscle disorders or a condition called idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Similarly, the injectable suspension may interact in people taking certain medications, such as antibiotics, insulin, seizure medications, blood thinners, aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), heart medications like digoxin, barbiturates, birth control pills, tuberculosis drugs like isoniazid and rifampin and some antifungal and anti-steroid medications. You should also avoid getting a "live" vaccine while on triamcinolone, as this may diminish the effectiveness of the vaccine. Additionally, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should alert your doctor, as triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension may cause damage to your child's health.
