Patient :How do I safely reduce my dose of Asmanex (inhaled corticosteroid: Mometasome) from 2x/day to 1x per day? Information provided with drug says to taper off and not stop or reduce dose abruptly.
Symptoms: I have asthma which is well controlled by Asmanex. I want to reduce dose from 2x per day to the minimum dose of 1x per day that I was originally on because of side effects I am now getting (elevated pressure in eye, bone density/osterporosis). But how do you taper 2x/day to 1x/day?
