What can I take if nasonex (mometasone) allergy?

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.
