Mometasone is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. Mometasone nasal is used to treat nasal symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, and runny nose caused by seasonal or year-round allergies. Mometasone is also used to treat nasal polyps in adults. Mometasone may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. Use this medication exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not use the medication in larger amounts, or use it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label. This medication comes with patient instructions for safe and effective use. Follow these directions carefully. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions. The usual dose of mometasone nasal is 1 to 2 sprays into each nostril once per day. Your doctor may recommend you start using mometasone nasal 2 to 4 weeks before the start of allergy season. Before using the spray for the first time, you must prime the spray pump. Shake the medicine well and spray into the air and away from your face, until a fine mist appears. Prime the spray pump any time you have not used your nasal spray for longer than 7 days. Shake the medicine bottle well just before each use. It may take up to 2 weeks of using this medicine before your symptoms improve. For best results, keep using the medication as directed. Talk with your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after a week of treatment.
