Perhaps see ENT/GI: If treatments for postnasal drip and gastroesophageal reflux did not help, it may be time to see either an otolaryngologist (ear-nose-throat physician) or a gastroenterologist to have a look with a fiberoptic camera and see what is going on. Which you should see depends on your symptoms; a primary care physician or HealthTap Prime or Concierge physician should be able to guide you. ...Read more

When I have post nasal drip, should I use nasonex (mometasone) or allegra, or both? None

When I have post nasal drip, should I use nasonex (mometasone) or allegra, or both? None

You : You can use either a steroid nasal spray such as Nasonex (mometasone) or Flonase or an antihistamine such as allegra, zyrtec or Claritin for post nasal drip. In many cases the best response occurs if you use both, which is certainly safe to do.

Importantly, it takes a few weeks for the steroid nasal spray to take effect so you should keep with it to see if it helps you. ...Read more

When you go for a sleep apnea test is it ok to use nasonex (mometasone) and Zantac that day... Or will it give a false reading?

Fine: These should not be a problem. Sleep studies evaluate multiple factors which can effect sleep, including leg movement, as well as the quality and quantity of your sleep itself. Sleep apnea will not be masked by either Nasonex (mometasone) or zantac. ...Read more

Nosebleed: Nose bleeds are common using nasal steroids especially in the winter when the heat is on and colder air holds less moisture. Make sure to direct the spray away from the nasal septum and follow with some saline gel. If that doesn't help then may need to try different spray. ...Read more

Ok for 8monthold use nasonex (mometasone) steroid nasel spray for slightly enlarged adenoids. History trach, bronch, lary malacia. Operated coarc aorta bicuspid valve?

No simple answer: A simple answer would be to say that Nasonex (mometasone) is a pretty benign drug in most instances — and that would be true. However, you describe a very, very complex case with complex respiratory issues. I would only use this drug if the physicians managing your child say ok. It should have no effect on the heart problems. ...Read more

Is nasonex (mometasone) okay to use for a post nasal drip?

Is nasonex (mometasone) okay to use for a post nasal drip?

Maybe: "Postnasal drip" can be due to many causes. If nasal allergy and inflammation is what's causing your feeling of drip then Nasonex (mometasone) can help. In my experience irritation of the throat caused by what patients eat and drink or by unrecognized reflux are far more common causes of feeling "post nasal drip." if you have reflux or drink a lot of soda, tea or coffee you should stop. ...Read more

Went to eye doc and pressure noted in bilateral eyes ie; 22 rt eye and 27 lt eye. He said could be advair and nasonex (mometasone) that I use?

Went to eye doc and pressure noted in bilateral eyes ie; 22 rt eye and 27 lt eye. He said could be advair and nasonex (mometasone) that I use?

Possible: There is warning on increase eye pressure from nasal or inhaled steroid. However, the incidence is extremely rare and the occurrence is likely related to your genes if these drugs do in fact affect your eye pressure. If your asthma requires Advair, you have no choice but to treat the eye pressure issue when it reaches dangerous level. Consider trying an antihistamine nasal spray vs Nasonex (mometasone). ...Read more

Can your body start resisting nasal steroids? Nasonex (mometasone) doesn't seem to work for me like it use too. Is this possible?

Can your body start resisting nasal steroids? Nasonex (mometasone) doesn't seem to work for me like it use too. Is this possible?

Technique: It is always a good idea to make sure the bottle is not expired and you are using it properly. When putting in nose, point tip out towards the eye so the spray will not hit the center part of nose. You may want to talk to your doctor about your dosage, sometimes there is room to move up on the amount of sprays or frequency to improve effectiveness. Using nasal saline irrigation before can help. ...Read more

I find nasonex (mometasone) clears my blocked nose well esp wen I travel. How often can I use it in a day without it being harmful to d body? Thank u!

I find nasonex (mometasone) clears my blocked nose well esp wen I travel. How often can I use it in a day without it being harmful to d body? Thank u!

Once a day: Nasonex (mometasone) is a topical steroid and can be very helpful in those with irritant or allergic "rhinitis" (runny nose) as an anti-inflammatory, however the recommended dose is only once a day. Even better, I believe, is saline rinsing (eg: "neti pot") which can be done several times a day and helps remove irritants and allergens. Only if saline rinsing doesn't work do I recommend a steroid spray! ...Read more

Is it safe to use dulera, (formoterol and mometasone) zyrtec, nasonex, and patanase together?

Allergy/Asthma: First off, follow the doctor recs. If you are worried, you should ask the allergist. But, yes, that is a safe regimen. It is actually a good therapy since the two nose sprays work very well together, the zyrtec is a good adjunct and Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is one of the best asthma medications. ...Read more
