What is DULERA?
DULERA is an inhaled medicine used to control and prevent asthma symptoms such as wheezing in people 12 and older.
DULERA is not a rescue inhaler and should not be used as a treatment for sudden asthma symptoms.
DULERA is not for people who are well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine like a low to medium dose of an inhaled corticosteroid medicine, or who only need a rescue inhaler once in a while.
Selected Important Safety Information About DULERA
- People with asthma who take long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA) medicines such as formoterol (one of the medicines in DULERA), have an increased risk of death from asthma problems. It is not known whether mometasone furoate, the other medicine in DULERA, reduces the risk of death from asthma problems seen with formoterol.
- Call your healthcare provider if breathing problems worsen over time while using DULERA. You may need different treatment.
- Get emergency medical care if breathing problems worsen quickly, and you use your rescue inhaler medicine, but it does not relieve your breathing problems.
- DULERA should be used only if your healthcare provider decides that your asthma is not well controlled with a long-term asthma-control medicine, such as an inhaled corticosteroid.
