What is Nasonex nasal spray?

Nasonex is a steroid nasal spray used to treat the symptoms of hay fever and allergic rhinitis

Nasonex nasal spray prevents and treats the common symptoms of allergies, such as congestion, a runny and itchy nose, sneezing, and watery or red eyes. 

The active ingredient in Nasonex is mometasone furoate, a steroid that reduces inflammation. It is part of a family of medicines known as glucocorticoids. 

Nasonex nasal spray is prescription-only medicine, which means you need to be prescribed it by a doctor or pharmacist to buy it. 


Nasonex nasal spray uses

Nasonex nasal spray is used to prevent and treat allergy symptoms. It is effective in addressing the symptoms of both seasonal allergies (hay fever) and year-round allergies. 

Among the common allergy symptoms that Nasonex nasal spray can treat are:

  • A runny nose
  • A blocked nose
  • Itching
  • Sneezing
  • Congestion

 

Nasonex can also be used to treat nasal polyps — soft growths in the nose. These aren’t usually serious, but can continue to grow and may block your nose if left untreated. Steroid sprays like Nasonex helps to shrink nasal polyps.

Mometasone furoate, the active ingredient in Nasonex, is also available in an inhaler, as a treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma. It also comes in a cream to treat skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

Both adults and children can take Nasonex nasal spray.


How does Nasonex work?

Nasonex contains the active ingredient mometasone furoate — a type of steroid. 

When the treatment is sprayed up the nasal passage, mometasone furoate is released and absorbed into the cells in the nasal lining. This prevents these cells from releasing the chemicals that normally trigger inflammation and allergy reactions.

By blocking this reaction, Nasonex reduces irritation and swelling, which relieves other symptoms such as sneezing, itchiness or a blocked nose. 


How to use Nasonex

Nasonex nasal spray is very simple to use. You can follow these instructions on how to use Nasonex:

  • Before using the spray, blow your nose gently to remove any mucus and clear your airways
  • Using your finger, close one of your nostrils and tilt your head forward
  • Put the nozzle inside the open nostril, and as you breathe in slowly, press on the nozzle and spray into the nostril once
  • Breathe out through your mouth

 

You can repeat the same process for spraying into your other nostril.

You can also find full instructions on how to use Nasonex in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your treatment.


Nasonex dosage

The correct Nasonex dosage for you will depend on the condition you are using it to treat.

The normal dose of Nasonex nasal spray for treating allergies (including hayfever) is one or two sprays into each nostril, once per day. 

For nasal polyps, the normal dose is one or two sprays into each nostril, once or twice per day. 

Do not exceed the recommended dosage in a 24-hour period.

Instructions for the correct Nasonex dosage for you can be found either in the Nasonex patient information leaflet that comes with your treatment, or on the prescription label on your medicine box. 


Can I use Nasonex while pregnant?

There is little evidence that indicates Nasonex nasal spray can harm unborn babies.

However, using steroid nasal sprays like Nasonex while pregnant isn’t usually recommended by medical professionals, and your doctor is only likely to prescribe Nasonex if the risks are outweighed by the benefits. 

If you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant, you should tell your doctor before you buy Nasonex online or at a high street pharmacy.


Nasonex vs Avamys

Avamys nasal spray is the UK brand name for fluticasone nasal spray, which contains the active ingredient fluticasone furoate. 

Like Nasonex, Avamys is a steroid treatment used for the prevention and relief of hayfever and common allergy symptoms. The two medicines are both glucocorticoids and work similarly, reducing the inflammation that causes allergy symptoms.


Nasonex vs Flonase

Flonase is the US brand name for fluticasone nasal spray, sold under the brand name Avamys nasal spray in the UK. 

It is a steroid treatment that works in a similar way to Nasonex, reducing inflammation to prevent and relieve the common symptoms of allergies. 


Who should not use Nasonex?

Nasonex spray isn’t the right treatment option for everyone. There are some situations in which Nasonex might be be suitable for you.

Nasonex might not be suitable for people who: 

  • Are currently taking other steroid medicines
  • Are pregnant or trying to get pregnant
  • Have or have ever had tuberculosis
  • Have suffered from glaucoma or cataracts

 

If any of the above points apply to you, speak to your doctor or pharmacist about using Nasonex first. They will be able to tell you if it is safe to use, or suggest an alternative medicine.

Furthermore, do not use Nasonex if:

  • You are allergic to mometasone furoate or any of the other ingredients in Nasonex (a full list can be found in the patient information leaflet)
  • You have an untreated infection in your nose
  • You have recently had or are going to have an operation or surgery on your nose
  • You have recently injured your nose

 

In these situations, using a steroid-based nasal spray like Nasonex could damage your nose and do more harm than good. 

If you aren’t sure whether Nasonex is suitable for you or not, seek advice from your GP or pharmacist. 


Warnings and precautions

Talk to your doctor before using Nasonex if:

  • You have or have had tuberculosis in the past
  • You currently have any type of infection
  • You are taking any other steroid medication including tablets or injections
  • You have cystic fibrosis

 

Talk to your doctor if any of the following occur while you are using Nasonex:

  • You feel as though your immune system is not functioning well
  • You encounter anyone that suffers from measles or chickenpox
  • You get an infection in your nose or throat
  • You have been using this medication for several months
  • You have constant irritation in your throat or nose

 

If you are concerned at all about using Nasonex and its effect on your health, seek medical advice.

What are the side effects of using Nasonex?

Although Nasonex side effects are unusual, they can still occur from time to time, so it’s important to be mindful of this. 

Among the common potential side effects of Nasonex nasal spray are:

  • Sneezing
  • Headaches
  • An unpleasant smell
  • Unpleasant taste
  • Dry mouth
  • Dry throat
  • A sore nose
  • Nosebleeds

 

These side effects are classified as ‘common side effects’, which means they are experienced by between one in 10 and 1 in 100 people. On the whole, Nasonex side effects are generally mild and should go away in time, once your body gets used to this medicine.

You should speak to your doctor if these side effects persist, or are bothering you.

Very few Nasonex users experience serious side effects but it’s important to seek medical assistance if you experience any of the following:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sores or any other damage inside your nose
  • Visual disturbances, including blurred vision or any other problems with eyesight

 

In very rare circumstances, Nasonex may cause a severe allergic reaction. Although these are very unusual, it’s important to be aware of these and to be able to recognise the signs of an allergic reaction. These include:
