What is Asmanex Twisthaler (Mometasone furoate) used for?

The medication Asmanex Twisthaler (Mometasone) is a corticosteroid drug used for controlling and preventing asthma symptoms (wheezing and shortness of breath). This product is not recommended for sudden breathing problems as it takes a long time to work. Take your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed if you have an asthma attack. Asmanex Twisthaler works by preventing the release of chemicals that cause asthma symptoms. The airways become less irritated and swollen. Managing your asthma symptoms can make everyday tasks, such as school or work, easier.

How To Use Asmanex Twisthaler (Mometasone)?

Your doctor will direct you to inhale this medication once or twice a day as directed. There is no need to exhale into your inhaler. The dosage is determined by your medical condition, age, and response to treatment.

Inhale/puff this medication last, if you are using other inhalers at the same time. If you are using other inhalers at the same time, wait at least 1 minute between each medication.

Rinse your mouth with water after every use to prevent dry mouth, hoarseness and white patches (oral yeast infection). Do not swallow the rinse water.

The most effective way to get the most benefit from this medication is to take it regularly. This medication works best if you take it at the same time every day in order to remember to take it.

Ensure that you always carry a quick-relief inhaler, and keep track of how many times you use it. You should discard the inhaler after 45 days or 60 days after taking it out of its packaging. This may vary depending on specific devices so call your doctor or pharmacist for more information. Store at room temperature away from children and animals when not in use.

Some conditions (such as asthma, allergies) may worsen when suddenly stopping a corticosteroid (such as prednisone) without getting medical advice. The withdrawal symptoms may include weakness, weight loss, nausea, headache, tiredness, and dizziness if you stop taking the drug suddenly. You may need to gradually reduce your old medication's dose after you begin using mometasone. If you experience withdrawal symptoms, contact your doctor or pharmacist right away.
