Triamcinolone without prescription?

** Originally posted by wavescrashover **

Forgive me if this is in the wrong spot...

Does anyone know if it's possible to get Tramcinolone Acetonide ointment without a prescription? I've been using it on & off for a few months now and had decent success but can't afford a doctor to get in for a script for more (or anything else for that matter.)

Thanks!

It is a wonderful ointment and does help out.

Have you tried Walmart/Target to get it for $4.00 dollars although, you must have a prescription to get this medicine, as far as I know.

That's one of two ointments that I use, but I had to get a prescription from my dermotologist. If you've previously received a prescription for it from your doctor, perhaps you could call and ask for a refill or new prescription w/o having to be seen by the doctor again. Explain your situation. That's what my dermotologist did - I don't see him until I reach the point that I find that these two prescribed ointments aren't doing their job at keeping the problem in check and tolerable - so if I need a refill the doctor just calls it in to the pharmacy. And, yes, you should be able to get this at the $4 rate. Good luck.
