Reviews for Mometasone nasal

Nasonex (mometasone): “The Nasonex caused crazy anxiety, super dizzy and weird visual things like after images from lights that would last 5 minutes. Waking up in middle of night totally dizzy and spinning. It might work well I'm not sure because I had to stop using it. The visual stuff freaked me out too much.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “I began using this after suffering from nasal congestion, headaches and sinus pains. After I began taking it I suffered from terrible pain behind my eyes, nausea and anxiety. I went to so many doctors but nobody was able to pinpoint what it was. I was having around 20 migraine/headache days per month. Painkillers were not helping and I was constantly put on higher and higher doses, which all eventually stopped helping. My nasal congestion also didn't really clear up but for some reason I still persisted. I didn't think it was the spray as I used other steroid sprays in the past so didn't dream it was the Nasonex. At one point it dawned on me that it might just be the Nasonex. I stopped using it and have not had another headache since. I feel better in myself and not so anxious anymore. I suffered terribly for 4 months.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “This was the worst experience of side affects with these his nasal spray!! It exacerbated my anxiety , and gave me heart palpitations, not to mention pressure behind my eyes omg it was so bad I didn’t know what was going on I didn’t know this till I googled ! So many have complained of the same things!! Heart palpitations and eye pain was the worst !!! I will stick to my saline nasal spray ! This stuff is really nasty !!!”

Nasonex (mometasone): “Nasonex was recommended by my ENT to assist with symptoms of eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) which I’ve endured for a couple of months now. I used Nasonex for 4 weeks and found it did nothing apart from make me feel nauseous and made my nasal passages extremely dry with slight blood in mucus, I also had a sore throat. I took myself off it and use saline nasal sprays instead, I find they do more for me and keep my nasal passages moist.”

“I have chronic sinititis (symptoms were eye pain, head ache, stuffed nose or runny nose, pressure around the eyes and cheeks) and was prescribed this drug. It helped my symptoms for the first 3 days, for the first time in years I had no sinus symptoms, I couldn't believe it. And then on day 4 I took my dose before at bed and it gave me crazy bad anxiety! Racing heart! Sweats, couldn't stay still, my vision went fuzzy, I almost called the hospital. Literally thought I was going to die. I was up until 7 am I couldn't fall asleep . When I woke up I was still having bad anxiety. Anxiety lasted about 2 days. Good thing I read these reviews, now I know I'm not the only one.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “I was prescribed this nasal spray as a form of treatment for symptoms of sinus. Before I started using Nasonex I was having at least three sinus infections a year which required antibiotics to clear up the pain, build of mucus etc. I take one spray in each nostril every night. And thankfully I haven't had an antibiotic for a sinus infection in a few years.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “I use nasonex for sinus/nasal swelling that causes headaches or fluid build up in my ears. It had always been more effective than antihistamines or anti inflammatory meds. I have issues with dry mouth and I think nasonex aggravates it, but I had to quit nasonex completely once I got dental implants. I got 4 dental implants, and nasonex causes the gum tissue around them to become so sensitive that I get queasy when my check touches rubs against my gums. It takes a long time to get better and my allergist and dentist are perplexed. There is no redness, or sores, in fact the gums look 100% normal, but the sensitivity is extremely uncomfortable and can last for weeks. It is awful that I have to choose which issue I have to live with. One doctor did say they saw a very very faint white lace pattern on the gums where it hurt, but everyone else said they saw no sign of something being physically wrong.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “My son experienced adverse reaction the morning after 1st dose (1 spray per nostril ) he complained of headache I thought was just because of his colds, he coughed more frequently and late in the afternoon he has low grade fever then he complained his legs ache, I relate all these with different things like another cold, too much playing , then I read the drug info thats when I had a hunch, so after second spray I observed his reaction on the first 2 hours , then the coughing happened again .I will stop the spray now and find a way to talk to the doctor tomorrow. I gave him Benadryl syrup and nebulize him with salbutamol . His usual treatment during attacks. ..”

Nasonex (mometasone): “I've been using nasonex for a good 3 weeks. Now and it really doesn't seem to work at all. If anything it seems to make my nose even more runny and now I can even taste it... use with caution, it could make your problem worst.”

“I've been using this mometasone nasal spray for a while and it worked really well for my allergy symptoms. Since I started the spray, I've been getting unusual migraines constantly, which I RARELY get. It was only today that I finally connected the dots and found that the spray is the reason I've been getting these migraines. It works super well for my allergies but I don't think I can continue because of this side effect!”

“I’ve been taking this mometasone nasal spray along with azelastine and 3 weeks into using them I started to realize my heart rate was extremely high constantly, I had a bit of chest pain and my usual health anxiety was elevated. My doctor at the ENT wants me to continue to use it for another 3 weeks, but after reading all these reviews and realizing I’m not crazy is making me decide to stop using.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “The product works well. The problem is the packaging. Why don't manufacturers stop using so much unnecessary packaging for their products when disposal is such a growing problem. Nasonex Allergy comes in a lovely plastic container that does not require a huge cardboard box, more than twice the size of the container. There is now a large space just for directions. Its about time these manufacturers started getting a little innovative with their packaging and reduced the need for unwanted excessive packaging that continues to produce problems for landfill.”

“My doctor prescribed this product to help post nasal drip which was affecting my ears. After the first couple of days of using this product I felt dizziness, really bad anxiety and flu like symptoms. I was so tired I could barely climb up the stairs. Also felt like it brought on symptoms similar to a bladder infection. I saw a doc to test for a bladder infection and she said it’s a possible side effect of this medication. I’ve been off this product for a week now and the anxiety, racing heart and dizziness is better but still lingering”

“Was prescribed this to treat suspected chronic sinusitis. Well, 2-3 days after starting the spray, my symptoms turned from what looked like allergy (post-nasal drip, clear nasal discharge, sneezing), to a full-on infection, complete with facial pain, very thick yellow/green mucous, severe congestion, headaches, no sleep, mouth breathing at night, virtually no sleep. I went from a functioning person to someone who couldn’t even get the kids off to school in the mornings. Got put on a round of antibiotics which did nothing, currently waiting on x ray results to find out what on earth is going on. Be warned, the information sheet early states that this medication can exacerbate an exisiting viral or bacterial infection, and I’m pretty sure that is what happened here.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “Got prescribed nasonex for sinusitis. I was supposed to be on it for a month but I could only handle the side effect symptoms for a week. I wanted to alleviate my sinus symptoms because of the sinus headaches I was getting but nasonex just gave me even more intense headaches that made my cheeks and forehead go numb. My nasal cavities are a little clearer but I can't even function with these headaches. So not worth the trade off.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “The Nasonex spray dispenser says 65 sprays. I've been spraying only twice in each nostril per day, and have had it for 2 weeks and it ran out, so only 56 sprays. I have no issue with the medicine, because it works, it's just the short changing of 9-10 sprays to save money their end but at a cost to the customer.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “First of all, it didn't really help me, I still suffered as much after I used it a few times for a sinusitis that was about to start. Second, it caused a huge cold sore to burst on my lip. I only had a cold sore once before (the first time I was infected) so I don't have have much doubt that Nasonex is what caused it.”

“I have used mometasone for almost 10 years for nasal polyps, chronic sinus infections, and seasonal allergies. The only treatment that has worked consistently. Possible (?) long term use side effects that I have experienced are cataracts, double vision, and suppressed white blood cell and platelet counts. Small price to pay for being able to breathe...!”

“Two daily sprays in each nostril for severe congestion (unable to breath out of nose) Works great for this issue, it's amazing how good it feels to not breathe like a dog anymore, but does have side effects. The worst being heart palpitations and my tolerance for caffeine/stimulants. Before taking this drug I was able to drink soda/fizzy drinks with no problem but now must monitor these carefully. Drank too much before I knew and had extremely strong palpitations that lasted over 4 hours. If I feel them now they will settle quickly if I start moving and burning some energy. Occasionally (once every 3 months roughly) I will go through a 3-4 day period of having sore sinuses and bending down is uncomfortable thanks to the pressure, didn't ever have this before. Last noticeable side effect is the odd spell (two 2 day periods) of vertigo which I have never experienced before until taking mometasone, which would make my head spin randomly while standing and even while laying down.”

Nasonex (mometasone): “I have been using Nasonex for years with no problems or side effects, I suffer from bad allergies and sinus infections and with the help of Sudafed or sinutab and Nasonex along with some Allegra, I am good to go. Whenever I feel any discomfort during allergy season, these products help and I don't see any side effects.”
