When used regularly, mometasone helps to prevent the wheezing and shortness of breath that can occur with asthma. This medication is in a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. It works directly in the lungs to make breathing easier by reducing the swelling of the airways.This medication does not work immediately. Therefore, it should not be used to relieve an acute asthma attack. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler (e.g., albuterol, salbutamol) as prescribed.

How To Use
  • Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using this medication and each time you get a refill.
  • This leaflet contains instructions for the proper use of this medication.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.This medication is inhaled through the mouth, usually once a day in the evening, or as directed by your doctor.
  • Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.If two inhalations/puffs are prescribed, wait at least one minute between them.If you are using other inhalers at the same time, wait several minutes between the use of each medication, and use this drug (the corticosteroid) last.To prevent dry mouth, hoarseness and oral yeast infections, gargle and rinse your mouth after each use.
  • Do not swallow the rinse solution.Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.
  • This medication works best if used regularly at even intervals.
  • Remember to use it at the same time(s) each day.
  • Do not increase your dose, use this more frequently or stop using this medication without first consulting your doctor.Keep track of the number of inhalations used from each inhaler.

Side Effects
  • See also Precautions.Dry or irritated throat, hoarseness or coughing may occur as your body adjusts to this drug.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.

  • You may need to start taking additional corticosteroids, especially if your body is stressed due to a major infection, surgery or injury.
  • Deaths have sometimes occurred during such stresses due to low steroid levels.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of the following side effects occur: unusual weakness, sudden weight loss, dizziness.

  • If you are exposed to these infections, seek immediate medical attention.Caution is advised when using this drug in children.
