GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY SCRIPT

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item

WARNING - MULTIPLE PACK PRESCRIPTION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

NASONEX contains the active ingredient mometasone furoate. This belongs to a family of medicines called corticosteroids, which are used to help reduce inflammation.

Allergic Rhinitis (hayfever):

NASONEX is sprayed into the nose to help relieve symptoms that may occur with hayfever or other year-round allergies, including stuffiness (congestion) in the nose, discharge, itching and sneezing. Your doctor may also prescribe NASONEX to help prevent these symptoms two to four weeks before the beginning of the pollen season.

Nasal Polyps:

Swollen tissue in the nose can cause grape-like swellings called 'polyps'. Polyps can cause nasal stuffiness, discomfort and loss of smell. NASONEX is used for the treatment of nasal polyps in patients over 18 years of age.

Acute Rhinosinusitis:

Rhinosinusitis is the swelling of the sinuses resulting in stuffiness of the nose, large quantities of mucus from the nose, cough, face pain and/or fever. These symptoms usually last for less than 4 weeks. NASONEX is used to treat the symptoms of rhinosinusitis in adults and children 12 years of age and older, who do not have the signs or symptoms of a severe bacterial infection.

Your doctor may have prescribed NASONEX for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why this medicine has been prescribed for you.

There is no evidence that this medicine is addictive.

NASONEX is available only with a doctor's prescription.

About your nasal spray

Your nasal spray has a dust cap that protects the nozzle and keeps it clean. Remember to take this off before using the spray and to replace it after use. If you are using the spray for the first time or if you have not used it for 14 days or more, prime the pump by pumping the spray 6 or 7 times until a fine mist is produced. It is important to clean the nozzle regularly; otherwise, it may not work properly. Remove the dust cap and gently pull off the nozzle. Wash the nozzle and dust cap in warm water and then rinse under a running tap. Allow the nozzle to dry. Push the nozzle back onto the bottle and replace the dust cap. The pump will need to be reprimed when first used after cleaning. How to use it


1. Shake the bottle gently and remove the dust cap.
2. Gently blow your nose.
3. Close one nostril and put the nozzle into the other nostril.
4. Tilt your head forward slightly, keeping the bottle upright.
5. Start to breathe in gently or slowly through your nose and whilst you are breathing in squirt a spray of fine mist into your nose by pressing down ONCE with your fingers.
6. Breathe out through your mouth. Repeat step 5 to inhale a second spray in the same nostril.
7. Remove the nozzle from this nostril and breathe out through the mouth.
8. Repeat steps 3 to 7 for the other nostril. After using the spray, wipe the nozzle carefully with a clean tissue and replace the dust cap.

When to use it

As instructed by your doctor. Do not use more frequently than instructed. How long to use it

Your doctor will determine the length of treatment. If you forget to use it

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and use your next dose when you are meant to.

Otherwise, use it as soon as you remember, and then go back to using your medicines as you would normally.

Do not use a double dose to make up for the dose you missed.

If you are not sure what to do, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

If you use too much (overdose)

Immediately telephone your doctor or the Poisons Information Centre (telephone 13 11 26 - Australia or 03 474 7000 - New Zealand), if you think you or anyone else may have used too much of this medicine. Do this even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning.
