Nasonex (generic name: mometasone furoate; brand names include: Metaspray) is a nasal allergy medication.
Taken just once a day, Nasonex helps relieve nasal allergy symptoms, such as congestion, sneezing, and an itchy or runny nose.
Nasonex can treat outdoor and year-round indoor nasal allergy symptoms in patients 2 years of age and older.
It is also used to help prevent most seasonal nasal allergy symptoms before they start in patients 12 years and older, when taken 2 to 4 weeks before the start of allergy season.
In addition, for patients 18 years and older, Nasonex can treat nasal polyps and help reduce the nasal congestion/obstruction they can cause.
For nasal allergy symptoms, once-a-day use of Nasonex provides day and nighttime relief. Nasonex is effective and has a proven safety profile.
Nasonex treats symptoms of both perennial (or indoor) and seasonal (or outdoor) nasal allergies - symptoms caused by allergens like dust mites, pet dander, mold, tree and grass pollen and others. Improvement can occur within 11 hours of initial treatment (based on single-dose studies done in a park during the pollen season and in a controlled pollen exposure room). The full benefit of Nasonex is usually achieved within 1 to 2 weeks.
Nasonex is non-habit forming and non-drowsy.
Each bottle contains 100 metered doses.
