The central nervous system side effect of headache has been reported in 18% of patients.
Respiratory side effects have included nasal irritation, pharyngitis, dry mucous membranes, burning and stinging, congestion, epistaxis, sneezing, and rarely, nasal septal perforations.
Endocrine side effects have included rare reports of suppression of the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis.

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 Allernaze) may be associated with increased risk of ocular hypertension and open angle glaucoma.
