Buy Nasonex

Nasonex is a nasal spray containing the active ingredient mometasone furoate, a type of medicine called a corticosteroid. Nasonex is used to relieve hayfever and allergy symptoms (rhinitis), such as sneezing, itchy eyes and blocked or runny nose. This medicine can also be used to treat nasal polyps, small growths in the lining of the nose.

How Nasonex relieves allergy symptoms

Nasonex nasal spray contains 50mg of the active ingredient mometasone furoate in each spray. This medicine works on your immune system to reduce the inflammation that occurs in hay fever and allergic conditions, relieving symptoms such as redness, swelling and itching. The nasal spray also reduces the amount of mucus in your nose.

 

Directions

Firstly, shake the bottle gently and remove the dust cap. You should then gently blow your nose to clear your nostrils. Close one nostril with your finger and put the nozzle into the other and start to breathe in gently through your nose. Whilst you are breathing in, squirt a spray of the medicine into your nose by pressing down once with your fingers. Remove the nozzle and breathe out through your mouth, then wipe the nozzle with a clean tissue and replace the dust cap. 

The recommended dosage for Nasonex depends on your age and you should always follow your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist’s advice. This information is intended as a guide only.

For the treatment of hay fever and perennial rhinitis

For adults and children over 12 years, the usual dose is two sprays into each nostril, once a day. Once your symptoms have improved, your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist might advise you to decrease the dose. On the other hand, if your symptoms don’t feel any better at all, your dose may be increased up to a maximum of four sprays into each nostril once a day. 

For children aged 3 to 11 years, the usual dose is one spray into each nostril daily. If your child suffers particularly badly from hayfever, their doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist may suggest that your child should start using Nasonex before the start of the pollen season in order to prevent hayfever symptoms. 

For the treatment of nasal polyps

For adults over 18 years old, the usual starting dose to treat nasal polyps is two sprays into each nostril once a day. If symptoms aren’t controlled after 5 to 6 weeks, the dose can be increased to twice daily instead of once. Once the symptoms are under control, your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist may advise you to decrease this dose. 

 

Side Effects

Like all medicines, there is a possibility that Nasonex may cause side effects in some people. If you experience any symptoms of an allergic reaction (swollen face, tongue or throat, trouble swallowing, hives or shortness of breath) seek medical help immediately. Common side effects include: 

  • Headache
  • Sneezing
  • Nose bleeds
  • Sore nose or throat
  • Ulcers in the nose
  • Respiratory tract infection

For more information on other possible side effects, refer to the patient information leaflet. If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme

 

Warnings

Nasonex may not be suitable for some people with other health conditions. You shouldn’t use this medicine if: 

  • You are allergic to mometasone furoate or any of the other ingredients in this medicine.
  • You have an untreated infection in your nose, as Nasonex may worsen the infection. 
  • If you have recently had an operation on your nose or you have injured your nose.

Talk to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist before taking Nasonex if: 

  • You have or have ever had tuberculosis
  • You have any other infection 
  • You are taking other corticosteroid medicines, either by mouth or by injection
  • You have cystic fibrosis

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Frequently Asked Questions

Hayfever is a common allergy that usually affects people in the spring and summer when plants start to release pollen, a very fine powder that is part of the plant’s reproductive system.

Hay fever is usually worse between late March and September in the UK, when the pollen count is at its highest.

Symptoms of hay fever include: 

  • Sneezing and coughing
  • A runny or blocked nose
  • Itchy, red or watery eyes
  • Itchy throat, mouth, nose and ears
  • Loss of smell
  • Pain around the temples and forehead
  • Headache or earache
  • Feeling tired


If you also suffer from asthma, hay fever can also cause a tight feeling in your chest, shortness of breath or wheezing and coughing.
