A:   Thank you for your question. We are not certain as to what side effects of this medication you are concerned about. Nasonex (mometasone furoate) is an approved nasal decongestant medication which if used effectively can greatly improve symptoms of your allergic rhinitis. If you have any specific questions regarding its side effects, please write us with them or consult your local pharmacist. This medication has not been recalled due to adverse side effects, and is still a readily used nasal decongestant.
