Brief Answer:
Yes, these will provide same dose.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Dulera is having formoterol and mometasone.
It is combination of both these drugs in single inhaler.
Asmanex is having plain mometasone.
Foradil is having formoterol.
So you can take both these inhalers separately.
They will give same effect as Dulera.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks

Yes, you are right. Convenience is expensive.
I must say, in your part of the world, it is much much much more expensive. In XXXXXXX we can get this drug very cheaply.
I don't know why this much price difference.
So, you should talk with your doctor about using inhalers separately.
Hope I have solved your query.
