What should my child avoid while taking Dulera?

While taking the asthma drug Dulera (mometasone and formoterol), your child should avoid:
  • taking any other medicine without talking to the doctor first
  • going near people who have chicken pox or measles
  • getting Dulera in his eyes
  • missing medical appointments. Your child's doctor may want to monitor him closely during treatment with Dulera.
Don't allow your child to use Dulera for sudden asthma attacks. It's not a rescue inhaler and should be used only to prevent symptoms, not to try to stop them once they start. Make sure your child doesn't stop taking Dulera until the doctor says it's okay. Doing so might cause your child's asthma symptoms to return.
