Your health care provider has prescribed ASMANEX TWISTHALER (mometasone furoate) for you or your child. It contains a medicine called mometasone furoate, which is a man-made corticosteroid. This medicine is used as maintenance treatment that helps prevent and control asthma symptoms.
ASMANEX TWISTHALER (mometasone furoate) is not a bronchodilator and should not be used for sudden symptoms of shortness of breath. Use an inhaled short-acting bronchodilator such as albuterol to relieve sudden symptoms of shortness of breath. Your health care provider may prescribe bronchodilators such as albuterol for emergency relief if an acute asthma attack occurs.
Use your ASMANEX TWISTHALER (mometasone furoate) regularly and at the same time each day, as prescribed by your health care provider. You or your child may not get the most benefit for 1 to 2 weeks or longer after starting ASMANEX. If you or your child's symptoms do not improve in that time frame or if your condition gets worse, contact your health care provider.
