Were you looking for information about Azmacort? Asmacort is a common misspelling of Azmacort.
As of December 2009, the manufacturer of Azmacort decided to stop making the drug in order to comply with regulations concerning chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), chemicals that may deplete the ozone layer. Had Azmacort been a more popular drug, the manufacturer probably would have chosen to reformulate it without CFCs, instead of just discontinuing it. Any unexpired Azmacort inhalers still in pharmacies may be dispensed until December 31, 2010, after which they can no longer be sold in the United States.
People with asthma may benefit from using Azmacort® (triamcinolone inhaler), a type of steroid that is available by prescription. The medication is not intended to treat an asthma attack once it begins, but rather to prevent attacks from occurring in the first place. Azmacort works by reducing the inflammation in the airways to allow more air into and through the lungs. Most people tolerate Azmacort well; and even when side effects occur, they are usually minor. Some side effects of Azmacort include a sore throat, headaches, and sinus infections. Azmacort comes in the form of an inhaler and it is usually taken two to four times a day.
