Dulera (Zenhale)

$139.99$160.88

The Dulera inhaler is utilized to proactively manage asthma symptoms like shortness of breath and wheezing. It contains two active ingredients: mometasone furoate and formoterol. Mometasone furoate is a corticosteroid that effectively reduces airway inflammation by targeting substances like histamine in the body that promote inflammation. Formoterol, on the other hand, relaxes the muscles surrounding the airways, facilitating their dilation. Additionally, formoterol prevents mast cells from transmitting chemical signals to the brain, which typically trigger inflammation, thus reducing airway sensitivity.
