Final Thoughts on Side Effects of Mometasone Inhalers

It is possible that you may experience some or none of the side effects explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the mometasone inhaler.
