What is Nasonex?
Nasonex is a nasal spray that contains the active ingredient mometasone. It reduces symptoms which are the result of inflammation in the nasal passages such as a runny, itchy or blocked nose, sneezing and nasal congestion. Nasonex nasal spray is used to prevent and treat hay fever and non-seasonal allergies (perennial allergic rhinitis).
Hay fever and rhinitis
Hay fever is an allergic reaction to airborne substances such as pollen of trees, grass, weeds and fungi that get into the upper respiratory passages or the eyes. Hay fever is the most common of all the allergic diseases: about 15 to 20 percent of the population in industrialised countries suffer from this condition. There is no cure for hay fever, but you can reduce symptoms with treatment. As opposed to hay fever, which is a seasonal allergy, perennial allergic rhinitis is a similar allergy that occurs all year round and is caused by things such as house dust mite, pet fur and certain nutrients. The symptoms of rhinitis include nasal congestion, repeated sneezing, a runny nose and itching.
How to use Nasonex
To treat allergies such as hay fever, adults and children from the age of 12 should use two sprays in each nostril once a day. Shake the bottle gently before use. Blow your nose so that your nostrils are clear. Close one nostril by gently pressing against the side of your nose with your finger. Insert the tip of the nasal spray in the nose and squirt one spray into the nostril keeping the bottle upright. Breathe in slowly through your nose while you are doing this, and breathe out through your mouth. Wipe the tip of the nasal spray with a clean handkerchief after use. Regularly clean the spray with warm water to ensure it works correctly.
Do not use Nasonex nasal spray if you are allergic to any of its ingredients, have an infection in the nasal passages or sinuses, or have recently had nasal surgery or an injury to the nose. Nasonex nasal spray is not suitable for use during pregnancy.
What are the side effects?
Nasonex nasal spray causes very few side effects. Some users have reported headache, sneezing, nosebleeds or irritation of the nose and throat after use. Allergic reactions are very rare. If you experience side effects that are severe or not listed here, consult your doctor.
