    Asmanex (mometasone furoate)

    Has anyone else ever been prescribed Asmanex? Apparently it is a brand new steroid which is even more powerful than FP (Advair)! I have just been put on it there at 800 ug a day and reducing to 400 ug after 1 week if Im ok.

    Anyone ever had side effects from it?

    I have never heard of it. How is it different from Advair and can we get it in the US? Sometimes posters are from Europe and they have different meds there sometimes.

    I think it has the same medicine as nasonex in it.....Mometasone....The original poster put this up in 2004 so I guess it's been around - I just bet advair is more doc said to try it instead since I didn't tolerate the advair - It "appears" to have fewer side effects but you never know and they are all the same side effects......I had never heard of it either....

    Re: Asmanex (mometasone furoate)

    I've been on it about three or four weeks now - I am not sure if it's making a difference or not.....I think I am wheezing a little less at night.....I think my biggest problem is chronic inflammation so I don't notice allergic symptoms so much....
    Hope you feel better....
    Best wishes,
