General

Triamcinolone nasal (the active ingredient contained in Nasacort Allergy 24HR) has been generally well tolerated and, due to the nature of its administration, has not been inclined to produce the systemic adverse effects generally associated with the use of corticosteroids.

Nervous system

The central nervous system side effect of headache has been reported in 18% of patients.

Respiratory

Respiratory side effects have included nasal irritation, pharyngitis, dry mucous membranes, burning and stinging, congestion, epistaxis, sneezing, and rarely, nasal septal perforations.

Endocrine

Endocrine side effects have included rare reports of suppression of the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis. The risk of adrenal suppression is less than that associated with systemic corticosteroids and is generally only of concern when using higher than recommended doses or in patients who may be particularly sensitive.

Ocular

Ocular adverse effects are more commonly seen with systemic administration of corticosteroids. However, posterior capsular cataracts have been occasionally reported with triamcinolone, especially with long-term use. In addition, prolonged use of high-dose inhaled corticosteroids ( >= 440 mcg of triamcinolone nasal (the active ingredient contained in Nasacort Allergy 24HR) may be associated with increased risk of ocular hypertension and open angle glaucoma.
