Different medication: People are generally not allergic to Nasonex (mometasone) but to something in the solution (and this is more likely to be a "sensitivity" not an allergy). If liquid nasal sprays are a problem, there is a new aerosol nasal steroid called qnasl. Talk to your doctor about that as an alternative.

Can you tell me the long term effects of taking nasonex (mometasone) for allergies?
2 doctor answers • 6 doctors weighed in
Nasonex (mometasone) effects: Nasonex (mometasone) is a topical corticosteroid; that means it is a steroid for inflammation (not the kind that athletes abuse) placed in the area where it is needed. These medicines are usually well tolerated at the recommended doses but can sometimes cause irritation and nosebleeds. They are rarely absorbed into the bloodstream but patients should get their eyes checked yearly to ensure no side effects.

Side effects: Nasonex (mometasone) can cause nosebleeds, headache and irritation. These are considered side effects. True allergy is extremely rare and would cause swelling of nasal tissue and perhaps itching. I've never seen this in 30+ years of clinical practice.
