Prescription AEROSPAN is used for the long-term (maintenance) treatment of asthma to control and prevent asthma symptoms in adults and children 6 years of age and older.
AEROSPAN is not a bronchodilator and does not treat sudden symptoms of an asthma attack, such as wheezing, cough, shortness of breath, and chest pain tightness. Always use a fast-acting bronchodilator medicine (rescue inhaler), such as albuterol, to treat symptoms.
Call your healthcare provider for medical advice about side effects. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.FDA.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
