My doctor prescribed Nasonex for a persistant cough, I only took it for approx one month and then noticed that from morning to night I was aware of a constant smell of fumes and a hightened smell of everything, especially detergents and room deoderisers, also a prickle feeling in my eyes. On returning to my GP she put me on Loratadine for two months, it is now two months on and I am no better. My life has been spoiled over the last three months, I am sucking peppermints all day long and eating as often as possible, I have put on 7 or 8 pounds and feel awful. I am returning to my GP next Monday. I am 73 years old. I wish I had never taken Nasonex and feel that if this and so many other side effects are possible it should be withdrawn.

Hi Graham,

Sorry to hear about your situation with Nasonex (Mometasone). I couldn't agree more that medications with such side effects should be pulled from the market. Posted below are some of the side effects I came across that may be similar to what you've been experiencing:

nose irritation or nosebleed
throat tightness
painful white patches in the mouth or throat
swelling of the eyes, face, tongue, throat, arms, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs
difficulty breathing or swallowing
dry throat
weight gain in the upper body, neck, and face

Ref: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a608035.html#side-effects

Does the heightened sense of smell seem to stay even after being off of the medication for some time?
