Metaspray Nasal Spray (Mometasone Furoate)
What is Metaspray Nasal Spray (Mometasone Furoate) used for?
Metaspray Nasal Spray (Mometasone Furoate) is an inhalable corticosteroid prescribed to treat the symptoms of seasonal allergies or other perennial allergens. The medication operates by preventing swelling and irritation in the nose to reduce the creation of mucous while allowing easier and more comfortable respiration. Your doctor may also prescribe its use for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Metaspray Nasal Spray (Mometasone Furoate)?
Always use Metaspray Nasal Spray (Mometasone Furoate) according to your doctor`s instructions and those included with the packaging to get the most effective results from treatment. One spray is normally administered once or twice each day, but the best dosage will be determined by your current health and the severity of your symptoms. To use the medication gently shake the bottle to mix its contents, remove the cap, insert the applicator into your nostril, and inhale while operating the pump to distribute one spray. When more than one spray is prescribed it is suggested to alternate nostrils to prevent irritation. If you have not used the medication for several days it may be necessary to prime the pump by pointing the nozzle away from your face and operating the pump until one spray is dispensed.
