Mometasone Nasonex Nasal Spray 50mcg


Seasonal allergic or perennial rhinitis


Adults (including older patients) and children 12 years of age and older:
The usual recommended dose is two actuations (50 micrograms/actuation) in each nostril once daily (total dose 200 micrograms).  Once symptoms are controlled, dose reduction to one actuation in each nostril (total dose 100 micrograms) may be effective for maintenance.
If symptoms are inadequately controlled, the dose may be increased to a maximum daily dose of four actuations in each nostril once daily (total dose 400 micrograms).  Dose reduction is recommended following control of symptoms.
Children between the ages of 3 and 11 years: The usual recommended dose is one actuation (50 micrograms/actuation) in each nostril once daily (total dose 100 micrograms).
Mometasone furoate nasal spray demonstrated a clinically significant onset of action within 12 hours after the first dose in some patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis; however, full benefit of treatment may not be achieved in the first 48 hours.  Therefore, the patient should continue regular use to achieve full therapeutic benefit.
Treatment with Mometasone Furoate nasal spray may need to be initiated some days before the expected start of the pollen season in patients who have a history of moderate to severe symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis.
Nasal polyposis
The usual recommended starting dose for polyposis is two actuations (50 micrograms/actuation) in each nostril once daily (total daily dose of 200 micrograms).  If after 5 to 6 weeks symptoms are inadequately controlled, the dose may be increased to a daily dose of two sprays in each nostril twice daily (total daily dose of 400 micrograms).  The dose should be titrated to the lowest dose at which effective control of symptoms is maintained.  If no improvement in symptoms is seen after 5 to 6 weeks of twice daily administration, the patient should be re-evaluated and treatment strategy reconsidered.
Efficacy and safety studies of mometasone furoate nasal spray for the treatment of nasal polyposis were four months in duration.
