Seasonal Allergic or Perennial Rhinitis
Children from 3 to 11 years of age.
Momex nasal spray demonstrated a clinically significant onset of action within 12 hours after the first dose in some patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis; however, full benefit of treatment may not be achieved in the first 48 hours. Therefore, the patient should continue regular use to achieve full therapeutic benefit.
Treatment with Momex may need to be initiated some days before the expected start of the pollen season in patients who have a history of moderate to severe symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis.
Nasal Polyposis (as from 18 years of age)
The usual recommended starting dose for polyposis is two actuations in each nostril once daily (total daily dose of 200 micrograms).
If after 5 to 6 weeks symptoms are inadequately controlled, the dose may be increased to a daily dose of two sprays in each nostril twice daily (total daily dose of 400 micrograms).
The dose should be titrated to the lowest dose at which effective control of symptoms is maintained.
