Effectiveness

How Elocon Affects PatientsMometasone is a type of synthetic steroid that attaches to glucocorticoid receptors more strongly than other steroids like dexamethasone. It also has a lower influence on mineralocorticoid receptors, making it more targeted in its action. Once it enters the body, it works by activating certain pathways that reduce inflammation.
How Elocon works in the bodyMometasone is used to treat asthma by preventing the production of chemicals that cause inflammation. It does this by binding to special receptors found in cells. This binding causes the receptor to move to the nucleus of the cell, where it can block the transcription of pro-inflammatory molecules. Mometasone also blocks proteins like activator-protein-1 and NF-kappaB that help create inflammation. This all helps to reduce inflammation and relieve asthma symptoms.

Elocon Toxicity & Overdose RiskTaking too much of a mometasone furoate inhaler can cause symptoms like increased steroid levels and adrenal gland suppression. In animal studies, some toxic effects were seen at high doses, but humans may not be as sensitive. When given to pregnant patients, the benefits and risks should be carefully considered. It is not known if mometasone furoate passes into breast milk, so caution should be exercised when giving to nursing mothers. Children may experience a reduction in expected growth rate of about 1cm per year when on a mometasone furoate inhaler, and should be given the lowest effective dose available
