Dulera Quick Facts

Proper Use

This medicine is used with a special inhaler and usually comes with patient directions or a Medication Guide. Read the directions carefully before using this medicine. If you do not understand the directions or you are not sure how to use the inhaler, ask your doctor or pharmacist to show you what to do.

Use this medicine only as directed. Do not use more of it and do not use it more often than your doctor ordered. Also, do not stop taking this medicine without telling your doctor. To do so may increase the chance of side effects.

When you use the inhaler for the first time, or if you have not used it for 5 days or longer, it may not deliver the right amount of medicine with the first puff. Therefore, before using the inhaler, prime it by spraying the medicine four times into the air away from the face, and shaking it well before each spray.

How to use this medicine:

  • Take the inhaler out of the carton before you use it for the first time.
  • Do not use the inhaler for this medicine with any other medicine.
  • Remove the cap from the mouthpiece of the actuator.
  • Do not remove the canister from the actuator.
  • Prime the inhaler before use by shaking the inhaler well and then releasing 4 test sprays.
  • To inhale this medicine, breathe out fully, trying to get as much air out of the lungs as possible. Put the mouthpiece fully into your mouth and close your lips around it. Do not block the mouthpiece with your teeth or tongue.
  • While pressing down firmly and fully on the blue top of the inhaler, breathe in through your mouth as deeply as you can until you have taken a full deep breath.
  • Repeat these steps for the next puff, starting with shaking the inhaler.
  • Replace the mouthpiece cover after using the medicine.
  • Gargle and rinse your mouth with water after each dose. This will help prevent hoarseness, throat irritation, and infection in the mouth. Do not swallow the water after rinsing.

    There are reports of worsening asthma leading to death in people taking medicines like Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol) that contain a long-acting beta agonist. Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol) should only be used if your symptoms haven't improved with a fast-acting inhaler or controller medication alone (corticosteroid inhaler). While taking Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol), if your asthma doesn’t improve or gets worse, if you need your rescue inhaler more often, or if you have sudden shortness of breath, call 911 or your doctor immediately.

    This is a black box warning. The FDA requires this warning when there is a significant risk of serious or life-threatening effects that anyone taking the drug should consider.

      Higher risk if:
    • Lowering dose or stopping Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol) too quickly, especially after long-term treatment

    Adrenal suppression can occur if you lower your dose or stop taking Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol) too quickly. Symptoms include joint or muscle pain, extreme low energy, and depression.

    • Long-term use of drugs that cause bone loss

    Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol) contains mometasone, a corticosteroid. In studies, people taking mometasone for a long time had reduced bone density (bone thickness) in the spine compared to placebo (sugar pill). It’s not clear if this caused more fractures. If you have any risk factors like not moving around, smoking, family history of postmenopausal bone loss, or are on medicines that can thin your bones, let your doctor know before taking Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol).

  • Heart disease
      Higher risk if:
    • History of heart rhythm problems
    • High blood pressure
    • Heart failure

These symptoms are related to one of the medications in this product, so don't change or increase your dose without talking to your doctor first. Tell your doctor if you develop dizziness, tremor, nausea, rapid heartbeat, become very tired, or have difficulty sleeping while taking Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol).

Talk to your doctor before taking Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol) if you haven't had vaccinations against certain viral diseases.

  • Reduced growth rate in children
      Higher risk if:
    • Dose of Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol)
