Can nasonex (mometasone) nasal spray make you gain weight? I use it daily. 2 sprays in each nostril? I have chronic sinusitus.

The steroid spray helps decrease long term nasal inflammation. Astelin is a topical antihistamine ( like claritin) and can be used in conjunction for symptomatic relief. ...Read more

Apples & oranges: Afrin works to reduce blood flow to nasals tissue, leading to reduced swelling.
