Does nasonex (mometasone) cause drainage? on day 3 taking it, and all a sudden i started experiencing tons of drainage from behind my nose into my throat.

Transient: If your nasal congestion had been preventing your sinuses to drain, a reduction in the congestion provides for sinus drainage- which is actually a good thing. However I'd expect this to stop after a week at the most. If the problem persists, talk to your doctor about trying an antihistamine nasal spray.
