Dulera Medication Information
Dulera® (mometasone/formoterol) is available only by prescription and is approved for treating asthma. Because this is not a fast-acting medicine, it is used to control asthma and prevent asthma symptoms; it is not used to treat symptoms after an asthma attack has started.
This medicine is not appropriate for everyone; your healthcare provider needs complete information on your medical history and what medications you are taking before prescribing Dulera. Although many people do not have any problems while taking Dulera, side effects can occur and may include headaches and inflammation of the nose or throat. If negative reactions do occur, they tend to be mild and easily treated.
Dulera comes in the form of an inhaler and is typically taken twice a day. Make sure to carry a rescue inhaler with you in between your Dulera doses in case of an emergency.
