In brief: Very different

Nasonex (mometasone) is a prescription nasal steroid spray to effectively treat nasal allergies in patients over 2 years old.
It is the most effective treatment for nasal allergies and used on a regular basis. Drixine is available over the counter oxymetazoline, a nasal decongestant which works quickly but designed for short term use (less than 4-6 days) due to risk of rebound nasal congestion.
