In brief: Polyps

Mometasone nasal is the only nasal steroid indicated for nasal polyps.

In brief: Mainly structural

Both Nasonex (mometasone furoate) and Flonase (fluticasone propionate) are corticosteroids used to reduce inflammation in the nose.
They differ mainly in their chemical structure but otherwise act very similarly in the body. They also both cause similar side effects (mainly irritation and nosebleeds). Another difference is that Flonase is available in a generic form.
