What is Asmanex HFA?
Asmanex HFA is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Organon. It is classed as an inhaled corticosteroid for the maintenance treatment of asthma as prophylactic therapy in patients 12 years of age and older.
Asmanex HFA is not recommended for the relief of acute bronchospasm. Instead, you should use a rescue inhaler that contains a short-acting bronchodilator, such as albuterol to relieve symptoms of a sudden asthma attack or other breathing problems.
What doses of Asmanex HFA are available?
Asmanex HFA is available as an inhalation aerosol containing 100 mcg or 200 mcg of mometasone furoate per actuation.
The Asmanex HFA canister is for use only with the Asmanex HFA actuator. To use the Asmanex HFA, remove the cap from the mouthpiece of the actuator before use. Before using it for the first time prime the inhaler by releasing 4 test sprays into the air.
For the treatment of asthma in patients, 12 years of age and older use 2 inhalations of Asmanex HFA 100mcg twice daily or Asmanex HFA 200 mcg. After each dose, rinse your mouth with water and, spit out the contents to help reduce the risk of oropharyngeal candidiasis.
Please read the patient information provided and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
