Lungs Home > Mometasone/Formoterol

Mometasone/formoterol is prescribed to control asthma and prevent asthma symptoms; it works by opening up the airways in the lungs. This medication comes in the form of an inhaler and is typically used twice a day. Because this is not a fast-acting medication, make sure you have a rescue inhaler for emergencies. Side effects may include inflammation of the nose, throat, or sinuses.
