Vanos Side Effects

Clinical studies have shown that Vanos may cause side effects such as headaches, nasal congestion, and burning at the application site. Most of these problems are typically minor and are generally easy to treat. However, notify your healthcare provider immediately if you develop symptoms such as severe fluid retention, hallucinations, or other potentially serious side effects.

An Introduction to Vanos Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Vanos® (fluocinonide cream) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Vanos. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)

Common Side Effects of Vanos

Vanos has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, one group of people received Vanos, while another group was given a placebo (a cream that did not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the placebo.
In these studies, the most common side effects of Vanos included:
  • Headaches -- in up to 4 percent of people
  • Burning at the application site -- up to 2.3 percent
  • Nasal congestion -- up to 1.4 percent.
In general, side effects are more likely to occur if a dressing, such as a bandage, is used to cover the cream. Do not use a dressing unless your healthcare provider specifically recommends that you do so.
