Age: 6 to 12 years:
-Initial dose: 180 mcg via oral inhalation twice a day; some patients may require an initial dose of 360 mcg twice a day
-Maintenance dose: May increase dose after 1 to 2 weeks if response is not adequate; once asthma stability has been achieved, titrate to the lowest effective dose to reduce the possibility of side effects
-Maximum dose: 360 mcg twice a day

TURBUHALER(R) Inhalation Powder (oral inhaler):
Age 6 to 12 years:
-Initial dose: 100 to 200 mcg via oral inhalation twice a day

Maintenance dose: 200 to 400 mcg via oral inhalation twice a day; higher doses may be necessary for longer or shorter periods of time in some patients; after asthma stability has been achieved, titrate to the lowest effective dose to reduce the possibility of side effects
-Once daily dosing may be considered in patients requiring 400 mcg per day; dose should be given in the evening

Comments:
-Improvement in asthma control can occur as early as 24 hours; maximum benefit is usually achieved within 1 to 2 weeks; individual patients may experience a variable onset and degree of symptom relief.
-If asthma symptoms arise between doses, a fast acting inhaled bronchodilator should be used for immediate relief; this drug should not be used for the relief of acute bronchospasm.
-Once daily dosing may be used unless it does not provide adequate control, then dosing should be administered as a divided dose, adjusting dose as needed.
-Once asthma stability has been achieved, titrate to the lowest effective dose to reduce the possibility of side effects.

Use: For the maintenance treatment of asthma as prophylactic therapy.
