What is Nasonex?

Nasonex nasal spray is a medicine that is used to treat and prevent the symptoms that come with seasonal hay fever, perennial rhinitis and nasal polyps.

Nasonex contains a medicine called mometasone furoate, which belongs to a class of drugs known as steroid nasal sprays, also called corticosteroids. When sprayed into the nose, mometasone furoate can work to relieve the symptoms of hay fever, such as inflammation, sneezing, itching and a blocked or runny nose.

It can be used to treat these conditions in adults and children over the age of 3.

What is Nasonex used to treat?

Nasonex nasal spray is used as a treatment and prevention method for the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis (commonly known as hay fever) and perennial rhinitis, a condition that occurs on most days throughout the year.

It can also be used for nasal polyps in adults over the age of 18. Nasal polyps are growths on the lining of the nose; this creates a blocked feeling in the nose which can cause breathing problems. Nasonex can cause the polyps to shrink over time by reducing the inflammation.

How does Nasonex work?

Hay fever is not a condition that can be cured. However, Nasonex is an effective medication for managing the symptoms that come with this problem. Nasonex contains a corticosteroid medicine called mometasone furoate, which has anti-inflammatory properties and works by controlling inflammation inside the nasal passages that happen in response to allergens.

This medicine can help to reduce swelling and also reduce the production of mucus inside the nose.

Many patients find that Nasonex relieves their symptoms within 12 hours of taking the first dose, although you might not feel the full benefit for the first two days. For this reason, it is important that you are consistent with your usage.

How to use Nasonex

Always use Nasonex Nasal Spray as instructed by your doctor or pharmacist. Read the patient information leaflet and ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Do not use this spray for longer or in larger doses than you were told to.

  1. Shake the bottle gently and remove the cap.
  2. Blow your nose gently.
  3. Press your finger against one nostril to close it and insert the nozzle into the other nostril.
  4. Tilt your head forward slightly while keeping the bottle upright.
  5. Breathe in gently through the nose. While you are doing this, press down on the pump once with your fingers. This will release one spray into your nose.
  6. Breathe out through your mouth. If applicable, repeat step 5 in the same nostril.
  7. Remove the nozzle from your nostril and breathe out through your mouth.
  8. Repeat steps 3 to 7 in the other nostril.
