In brief: Not much

You shouldn't get many side effects from Nasonex (mometasone) (an intranasal steroid) when you're using it correctly.
Should be sprayed so that it stays in the nose. If it gets into the throat, you can get mild forms of the side effects of oral steroids- weight gain, mood instability, changes in energy level, etc. If you think you're getting side effects, go back to the doc who prescribed it to talk it over.
