In brief: See below

Asmanex is a maintenance medication, you are not expected to feel like you are getting anything after you take it.
This is a common misconception. Is your asthma getting better overall? That is how you measure your response. If not, there are other similar medications that may help you, talk to your doctor.

In brief: Ask your doc or

Nurse to demonstrate proper use of the inhaler.
If you still feel you're not getting adequate benefit, discuss that with doc for possible change to different med or added medication. Doc may need to do pre- & post-inhaler lung function testing.
