Cortalone is used to treat a variety of inflammatory conditions, including symptomatic treatment of allergies. Cortalone is a synthetic corticosteroid, specifically triamcinolone. Corticosteroids are also referred to as glucocorticosteroids, glucocorticoids, or sometimes simply as steroids. They are used for the treatment of multiple conditions including adrenal insufficiency (Addison's disease); inflammation; autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, pemphigus, and some anemias; allergies including atopy; asthma; some cancers; and certain types of colitis and kidney diseases (nephrotic syndrome).

How does Cortalone work?
Cortalone is a corticosteroid that blocks the production of substances that trigger allergic and inflammatory actions. Cortalone is used to modify the body's immune response. At lower doses it helps to reduce inflammation by decreasing the activity of certain cells and chemicals produced by the body that cause inflammation. At higher doses, it can suppress the immune system by decreasing the number of cells necessary for a proper immune response.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Cortalone is a branded generic.

How is it given?
Cortalone is an oral tablet, given by mouth. It may be given with food to avoid stomach upset. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. If you have difficulties giving the medication, contact your veterinarian. Dosage depends on the product used. Your veterinarian may recommend starting at a higher dose and then reducing the dose every few days to a week. If on long-term therapy, do not discontinue the drug abruptly. The dose needs to be tapered off over several days to weeks to allow the body to start making its own cortisol again.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

What results can I expect?
When used to treat inflammatory conditions, such as allergies, the success rate is very good and improvements can be seen in several days. If the Cortalone is stopped, signs of the disease may reappear. Autoimmune diseases and cancers are more difficult to treat and the success rate will depend on the type and severity of the condition.

What form(s) does it come in?
