Asmanex Asthma Drug

If you have asthma, your healthcare provider may prescribe Asmanex® (mometasone inhaler) to help prevent asthma attacks. The prescription medication comes in an inhaler and is typically used once or twice a day, every day.
As an asthma drug, Asmanex should not be used as a rescue inhaler. It is used to prevent asthma attacks, not to treat them once they start. Inhaled steroids go directly into the lungs and help to decrease the inflammation of airways that makes asthma attacks more likely.
Although most people tolerate this medication well, side effects are possible. The most common Asmanex side effects that were reported in clinical studies include upper respiratory infections, a stuffy or runny nose, headaches, and sore throat.
