DULERA

MOMETASONE/FORMOTEROL

Dulera (Mometasone / Formoterol) is a combination asthma medicine. Mometasone (a corticosteroid) lowers lung inflammation and works to control your asthma and prevent asthma attacks. Formoterol (a long-acting bronchodilator) relaxes muscles in your lungs to open airways and prevent wheezing and shortness of breath. Source: Iodine

About This Data

The data for 2014 includes more than 1.4 billion prescriptions written by more than 1.3 million doctors, nurses and other providers. This database lists about 428,000 of those providers who wrote 50 or more prescriptions for at least one drug that year. Almost three-fourths of these prescriptions went to patients 65 and older; the rest were for disabled patients. Methodology »
