Purpose of Nasacort
Nasacort contains a medicine called triamcinolone acetonide. It belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. Nasacort works at the source to reduce inflammation and relieve allergic nasal congestion, sneezing, and itchy and runny noses. Nasacort is clearly not an antihistamine.
Nasacort is used to prevent and treat seasonal and year-round allergic symptoms (such as stuffy/runny nose, itchy eyes/nose/throat, and sneezing). It works by reducing swelling (inflammation) of the nasal passages. Check the ingredients on the label, even if it’s already been used. Also, products with similar names may contain different ingredients intended for different purposes.
