Pediatric and Off-Label Uses for Asmanex
Asmanex Use in ChildrenAsmanex is approved to treat asthma in children 12 years of age and older. Young children usually require help using the Asmanex inhaler correctly. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider about the best ways to treat childhood asthma. Inhaled steroids, such as Asmanex, may slightly slow the growth in children or teenagers.
Off-Label Asmanex UsesOn occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Asmanex for something other than preventing asthma attacks. This is known as an "off-label" use of the medication. At this time, the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is among these possible off-label Asmanex uses.
