What is Dulera used for?

Dulera (mometasone and formoterol) is a drug used to treat asthma in people ages 12 and older. Dulera contains two active ingredients: Mometasone is an inhaled corticosteroid that reduces inflammation and swelling in the airways. Formoterol belongs to a class of drugs called long-acting beta-agonists, or LABAs, and can relax and open airways to make breathing easier. Together they can prevent wheezing and help to control other symptoms of asthma.

Doctors prescribe Dulera to get asthma under control. It's not a "rescue inhaler" and should not be used to treat sudden severe asthma attacks. Once your asthma is under control, your doctor may have you stop taking Dulera and prescribe a long-term asthma control medication, such as an inhaled corticosteroid instead.
