You had recently replied to this question saying that it 'shouldn't ' contain alcohol and that 'most' of its ingredients are plant based.Is it correct to assume then that this product is not completely free from animal deratives and may possibly contain alcohol? Would it be possible to get 100% assurance? As a muslim this issue is very important to me...
Nasonex contains an aqueous (so water based) suspension of mometasone furoate monohydrate equivalent to 0.05% w/w mometasone furoate, calculated on the anhydrous (so without water) basis, glycerin, microcrystalline cellulose, and carboxymethylcellulose sodium, sodium citrate, citric acid, benzalkonium chloride, and polysorbate 80. This is right off the side of the box. So no alcohol for sure, as far as the animal derivatives I dont believe so. Glycerin, I believe is plant based and so are cellulose and methylcellulose. Have you consulted with your pharmacist? They are the chemical experts in medicine and should be able to tell you whether or not there are any animal based ingredients here.
