Nasonex nasal spray can effectively treat and prevent the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Nasonex effectively treats both seasonal and year-round allergies. Nasonex contains the active ingredient Mometasone furoate, which is a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids, such as Mometasone have anti-inflammatory properties. Nasonex nasal spray can also treat nasal polyps; these are growths that develop at the nose alongside other allergy symptoms.

It is estimated that around 20% of people in The UK suffer from allergic rhinitis. The condition is caused by an overactive immune system, whereby it mistakenly reacts to allergens in the same way that it would an infection. As a result, when harmless allergens enter the nose, the body overreacts and starts to produce extra mucus. This will lead to symptoms, such as sneezing, congestion, and a runny nose. It still isn’t fully understood why some people’s immune system reacts this way. However, allergic rhinitis often runs in families, so genetics is believed to play a role. The most common triggers for allergic rhinitis include; pollen, dust mites, and animal fur. In most cases, allergic rhinitis doesn’t cause any serious complications, though the symptoms can be extremely frustrating and inconvenient. In rare cases, allergic rhinitis can lead to sinusitis or a middle-ear infection.

Unfortunately, allergic rhinitis cannot be cured, however, the symptoms can be effectively managed with treatments like Nasonex. The corticosteroid works by stopping the immune system’s inflammatory response to allergens. This prevents unwanted allergy symptoms from developing.

Alternative Treatments 

There are some non-medicinal methods to help combat hay fever symptoms. Some of these may include: 

  • Wear wrap-around sunglasses
  • Keep windows closed when it is a day with high pollen count. 
  • Try to have a shower after a day almost straight away. This will remove any trapped pollen grains from your hair and or skin. 

There is an extremely large range of OTC (over the counter) products you can purchase in any pharmacy, these vary from tablets to nasal sprays and also eye drops. You should try these before moving onto a prescription only medicine. 

Thoroughly blow your nose and shake the bottle before use. Place the nozzle slightly inside your nostril, and press the button once to release one actuation. Inhale gently, so as to keep the medicine in the nasal passages rather than the lungs.

During each inhalation, the bottle will release 100 micrograms of mometasone. The recommended initial dose is two sprays in each nostril, once a day. Depending on the severity of your allergies, this dose may be increased, but it should not exceed two sprays into each nostril twice a day. If your symptoms improve, you can reduce your dose to one spray per nostril per day.

You should notice your symptoms improving within 12 hours, though it will likely take a few days for Nasonex to reach its full effect.

Not everyone will experience side effects when they take Nasonex Nasal Spray. However, if you do, they can include:

Nosebleeds, irritation in the nose or throat, headache, sneezing, nose ulcers, respiratory tract infection

If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

  • How do I buy Nasonex online?

    It’s simple!

    You will need to fill in a simple health questionnaire so that our GPs and Pharmacists can ensure it is safe for us to supply your Nasonex to you. It only takes a few minutes, and your treatment can be delivered to your door as soon as the next working day.

  • How many packs of Nasonex can I buy in one purchase?

    Nasonex is a prescription-only hay fever treatment. For that reason, to ensure the safety of our patients and the legal operating of our pharmacy, we only supply a maximum of 3 packs of treatment at one time.

    This allows us to balance offering our patients an adequate supply of treatment with regular checks on their condition, symptoms, and effectiveness of treatment. This model ensures the perfect mix of convenience with optimal health and safety.

    If you have no adverse effects and your hay fever is well controlled, you can log in and easily re-order another supply.

  • What does Nasonex contain?

    Each use (or actuation) of Nasonex delivers 50 micrograms of a corticosteroid called mometasone furoate. It also contains several inactive ingredients. For more details, please see the ‘Ingredients’ tab above.

  • How does Nasonex work?

    The active ingredient in Nasonex, mometasone furoate, works by controlling the inflammation of the nasal passages that occurs in response to allergens in the air. This reduces swelling and mucus production, providing relief from the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. It also treats nasal polyps, small growths that may appear in the nasal passages alongside hay fever symptoms.

  • How do I take Nasonex?

    Press the button once to release one dose of Nasonex. The recommended initial dose is two doses for each nostril, once per day. Inhale gently, so as to keep the medicine in the nasal passages rather than the lungs. You should notice your symptoms improving within 12 hours, though it will likely take a few days for Nasonex to reach its full effect.

  • Is it safe to use a nasal spray at the same time as oral Antihistamines?

    Yes – it is very common to use both treatments simultaneously. However, do not use multiple steroid nasal sprays at the same time.

  • Is Nasonex available for next-day delivery?

    Yes – we understand that sometimes you will want your treatment as soon as possible. If ordered before 4pm Monday to Friday, Nasonex is available for next-day delivery.

    Yes – as long as you are buying from a website that is a legally operating and regulated pharmacy, it is perfectly safe to buy Nasonex online.
