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

Yes. Nasonex (mometasone) is a topical nasal steroid indicated for the treatment of allergic rhinitis in persons over 2 years old. Frequently allergies cause post nasal drip. If it does not seem to help, then further evaluation would be useful including allergy testing.
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.

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...

Anti-inflammatory. Nasonex (mometasone) is a corticosteroid nasal spray that reduces inflammation of the mucous membranes of the nose and sinuses. Reducing the inflammation reduces the amount of mucous produced resulting in less post nasal drip (and less "runny nose."). Read more...

Nasal steroid. Greetings. Unfortunately the cheapest nasal steroid spray that I have seen is Nasacort (triamcinolone) at 36 US dollars for a 3 month supply. That's about the same as a co pay with insurance coverage for a generic. Nasacort (triamcinolone) and Flonase OTC are name brand only as of now. I would suggest continuing with generic zyrtec for allergy control. Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy may be another option with avoidance. Read more...

My doc put me nasonex (mometasone) and tessalon pearl for cough and post nasal drip, sneezing, stuffy for over 3 weeks but I still can't stop coughing. Need sleep?

A good start. Nasonex (mometasone) ia good start if one suspects environmental allergy causing symptoms described for duration of greater than 2 weeks. However, it will take days to weeks of daily use to reach maximum efficacy. Would add twice daily saline irrigation and oral antihistamine such as cetirizine (Zyrtec otc). Can even add decongestant to the antihistamine for faster short-term relief. See allergist for work up. Read more...
See below. If your cough is a post-viral cough, almost nothing helps. Nasonex can take weeks to really start working well. Astelin nasal spray works pretty well. Chlorphenirimine works as good as anything if the cough is coming from post nasal drip. Lastly, you might try to find Chestal with honey - I've found it at Whole Foods and Walgreens. It works as good as anything I've tried that's over the counter. Read more...
