What is Asmanex?

Asmanex Twisthaler contains the active substance mometasone furoate, which belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids or, as they are simply known, steroids. Corticosteroids should not be confused with "anabolics", steroids that are misused by some athletes. Corticosteroids are used to prevent asthma attacks as they have an anti-inflammatory effect. They reduce inflammation and irritation of the walls of the small airways of the lungs. This helps facilitate breathing.

How does it work?

Asmanex Twisthaler is an inhalation powder that releases your medicine directly into the lungs when needed. Each inhalation releases an active substance, mometasone furoate. Mometasone furoate belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids, which as previously stated, are used to prevent asthma attacks, as these corticosteroids have an anti -inflammatory effect. These medicines reduce the swelling and irritation that observe on the walls of the small airways in the lungs. These effects alleviate respiratory problems.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Asmanex inhalers are used to prevent shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing and coughing caused by asthma. Asmanex (Mometasone Oral Inhalation) is used in adults and children over 12 years of age. Mometasone powder for oral inhalation (Asmanex® Twisthaler) is used in adults and children over 4 years of age. It is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. Mometasone works by decreasing swelling and irritation in the airways to allow easier breathing.

How do I use it?

Instructions for proper use of the inhaler

Remember that Asmanex Twisthaler produces a very fine powder, which you must inhale into your lungs. You must stand when using your inhaler. To receive the correct dose, follow these instructions carefully.

Before removing the white cap, make sure the counter and arrow on the cap are aligned. To open the inhaler, remove the white cap. Hold the inhaler upright, with the maroon base down. Hold the base and turn the cap counterclockwise to remove it. When you remove the cap, the dose counter on the inhaler will decrease by one unit.

Make sure the counter on the maroon base and the arrow on the counter are aligned with each other. Hold the inhaler up once the cap is removed and before inhaling your dose.

To inhale your dose:

Remove the cap from the inhaler.

  1. Bring the inhaler to your mouth, with the mouthpiece facing you.
  2. Put the mouthpiece of the inhaler in your mouth, close your lips around the mouthpiece and breathe in quickly and deeply.
  3. Remove the inhaler from your mouth and hold your breath for about 10 seconds or whatever is comfortable for you. Never blow air out through the inhaler.
  4. To close the inhaler, replace the cap immediately after each inhalation. The cap must be fully inserted and rotated so that the dose for the next inhalation is loaded. To do this, it must be turned clockwise while pressing down slightly until you hear a "click" indicating that the cap is fully closed. The arrow on the cap should be fully aligned with the counter window.

Its dosage

For adults (including those over 65 years of age) and adolescents over 12 years of age, with mild to moderate asthma, the recommended starting dose is 400 micrograms, once daily at night, needing Asmanex Twisthaler inhalation powder. However, for some patients the starting dose may be 200 micrograms (1 dose or inhalation) twice daily, requiring Asmanex Twisthaler 200 micrograms powder for inhalation. If your asthma is controlled, your doctor may reduce the dose to 200 micrograms (1 dose or inhalation of Asmanex Twisthaler 200 micrograms inhalation powder) once daily in the evening. Depending on your symptoms, your doctor may increase or decrease your daily dose to keep your asthma under control.
