Nasonex Nasal Spray
Nasonex® (mometasone nasal spray) is a medication commonly used to treat sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, and nasal itching due to allergies (allergic rhinitis). It is also approved for the treatment of nasal polyps.
The drug comes in nasal spray form and is available by prescription only. It only comes in one strength and is typically used once or twice a day (depending on what condition is being treated).
In clinical studies, Nasonex nasal spray was shown to help reduce runny nose, nasal congestion, itching, and sneezing. It was also shown to help decrease the severity of nasal polyps. These studies also show that the medicine can be used to prevent nasal allergy symptoms when it is started two to four weeks before an anticipated allergy season.
