Mometasone Inhaler (Asmanex)
Available by prescription only, the mometasone inhaler (Asmanex®) is used to prevent asthma attacks. It can be prescribed to adults and children who are at least 12 years old. In clinical studies, people using this product had improvements in asthma symptoms, compared to those not using it. In addition, people already taking oral steroids for asthma were able to decrease or eliminate their oral steroid when they began taking the mometasone inhaler.
The medication is not intended to treat an asthma attack once it starts.
