The most complicated puffer ever - designed by imbeciles! Terrible instructions, impossible to tell whether it's working. NO instructions on use with spacer. TOTAL waste of money. Ask for alternative until the brain-dead at Merck come up with something better.

Began using Asmanex in March 2013 to treat asthma. It took a few weeks for me to notice improved lung function, and I still have a ways to go to have "normal" function for my age.

My daughter takes asmanex every time she gets a cold. She uses it for about a week and the hacking cough stops. She gets illness induced asthma and this has been the only thing that has helped. It knocks the cough right out. I have not noticed any side effects with this medication but she only takes it for about a week at a time.

Was prescribed this after Qvar failed to keep my symptoms away. Took a few days to get used to the dry powder inhalation. I gargle and brush after every use and have had no issues. It has kept my asthma symptoms pretty controlled except when I'm sick or my allergy triggers it.
