Asmanex Twisthaler (corticosteroids) is used to control and prevent symptoms of wheezing and shortness of breath caused by asthma. It works by reducing the irritation and swelling of the airways. Controlling symptoms of breathing problems can decrease time lost at work or school. It is used in adults and children 12 years of age and older.
Use Asmanex Twisthaler exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets.
Asmanex comes in a powder form that is preloaded with a special inhaler device (twisthaler). The device will deliver a measured dose of mometasone as a fine powder spray each time you use the inhaler.
You may or may not be able to feel or taste this powder in your mouth while using the inhaler. It may take up to 2 weeks before your symptoms improve. Keep using the medication as directed, and call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after one week of treatment.
To help prevent thrush (a yeast infection in the mouth or throat), rinse your mouth with water without swallowing after using your inhaler.
Keep the cap on your inhaler when not in use. Keep the inhalation aerosol canister away from open flame or high heat. The canister may explode if it gets too hot. Do not puncture or burn an empty inhaler canister.
Please do not wash your inhaler device or allow it to get wet. Wipe the mouthpiece with a clean, dry tissue or cloth.
