Nasonex (Mometasone nasal spray)

Mometasone furoate is a synthetic (man-made) glucocorticoid steroid hormone used to treat nasal allergies.  Glucocorticoid hormones in particular have anti-inflammatory properties.  It is effective in controlling inflammation of the nose, stuffiness, and congestion caused by allergic rhinitis wherein the inner lining of the nose releases fluid and swells.  Mometasone furoate is used as a nasal spray where the medication goes directly to the nose’s inner lining leaving very little absorbed by the body. 
General usage is two sprays in each nostril daily.  For use as therapy in preparation for seasonal allergies, usage should begin 2-4 weeks before the allergy season.  There will be noticable improvement on symptoms within 2 days.
