DOSE ADJUSTMENTS

The usual dosage of an intra-articular injection of smaller joints (e.g., fingers) is 2 mg to 5 mg.

Short term administration is desirable as a rule. Generally dose is given as a single morning dose, daily or on alternate days. Occasionally, patients may obtain a more effective relief on divided daily doses, either 2 to 4 times daily.

A smaller initial dosage range of triamcinolone diacetate may produce the desired effect in intra-articular, intralesional and soft tissue use.

Intralesional and sublesional injections to large areas may require multiple injections with smaller doses per injection. The limit for any one lesion is 25 mg.

Alternate-day therapy may be initiated after the conventional dose has been established.

Adjust dose to keep symptoms at a level tolerable by the patient, and to reduce suppression of the pituitary-adrenal axis.

PRECAUTIONS

Exposure to excessive amounts of benzyl alcohol has been associated with toxicity (hypotension, metabolic acidosis), particularly in neonates, and an increased incidence of kernicterus, particularly in small preterm infants. There have been rare reports of deaths, primarily in preterm infants, associated with exposure to excessive amounts of benzyl alcohol. The amount of benzyl alcohol from medications is usually considered negligible compared to that received in flush solutions containing benzyl alcohol. Administration of high dosages of medications containing this preservative must take into account the total amount of benzyl alcohol administered. The amount of benzyl alcohol at which toxicity may occur is not known. If the patient requires more than the recommended dosages or other medications containing this preservative, the practitioner must consider the daily metabolic load of benzyl alcohol from these combined sources.
