Anytime OK...: There is actually no study showing any particular time Nasonex (mometasone) should be used. It may be even better to use at night because you will be asleep and the healing can occur. If you keep forgetting to use it in am as you were instructed, it is not helping you. So, use it at night when you can remember--it is better than not using (if it works and no side effects). Consult doc. Good luck.

No: You should be using saline rinse via bulb syringe, and must see your doctor for any more aggressive therapy.
