Customer Question
Hi, I took over...

Hi, I took over the recommended dose of Mometasone Furoate, 3 sprays per nostril rather than 2. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Just this at the moment, first time taking it. No allergies

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Mometasone Furoate nasal Spray is a steroid used to treat nasal symptoms such as congestion, sneezing and runny nose caused by seasonal or year-round allergies.

The recommended dose of Mometasone Furoate is two sprays (50 mcg of mometasone furoate in each spray) in each nostril once daily (total daily dose of 200 mcg).

As you have taken 3 sprays (150mcg)- so this is not overdosage.

Nothing to worry.You should not get any side effects from this one extra spray.

Nothing to worry or of concern here.

Thank you

Kind Regards

Dr Charles,Thank you for your response, I have taken 6 sprays, 300mcg.I think it is over the recommended dosage, so what are some of the side effects I should look out for?Thanks
Health Professional: Dr. Charles, Doctor replied 9 months ago

Even if you have taken 6 sprays, 300mcg -this one single dosage should not cause any side effects other then mild dryness in nose.

Only in long term over dosage- side effects can appear.

So bot***** *****ne is I do do worry for this 6 sprays, 300mcg.

Nothing of concern here.

Thank you

Kind Regards

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
