Mometasone is used to help prevent the symptoms of asthma and improve breathing in patients 4 years of age and older. When used regularly every day, inhaled mometasone decreases the number and severity of asthma attacks. However, it will not relieve an asthma attack that has already started.
Mometasone HFA is used as a maintenance treatment for the prevention and control of asthma symptoms in patients 12 years of age and older.
