In brief: 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!
