ASMANEX(R) (Mometasone Furoate Dry Powder Inhaler) Now Approved in Japan for the Treatment of Bronchial Asthma in Adult Patients
Date:7/9/2009

Patients who are at increased risk of decreased bone mass should be monitored.

Inhaled steroids, including ASMANEX, may cause a reduction in growth velocity when administered to pediatric patients. The long-term effect on final adult height is unknown. Health care providers should closely follow the growth of children and adolescents taking corticosteroids by any route, and reduce each patient's dose to the lowest dose that effectively controls his/her symptoms.

ASMANEX may increase the risk of some eye problems such as cataracts, glaucoma, and increased intraocular pressure. Patients with a change in vision or a history of eye problems should be monitored by their health care provider.

Use ASMANEX as directed by your health care provider, since its ability to work in your lungs depends on regular use. Maximum benefit may take 1 to 2 weeks or longer. If your asthma symptoms do not improve, or get worse, contact your health care provider.

The most common side effects with ASMANEX in patients 4-11 years old include fever, allergic rhinitis, abdominal pain, vomiting, urinary tract infection, and bruise.

The most common side effects with ASMANEX in patients 12 years of age and older include headache, allergic rhinitis, sore throat, and upper respiratory infection.(2)
