insomnia was a big side effect of Nasonex for me. I stayed awake for 3 days straight. It was painful for my eyes and I had to take time off of work due to it.

Female- 38. Seasonal allergies cause sinus inflammation. I usually do homeopathic remedies but earlier this week my symptoms were very bad. I tried nasonex. 1x, in the evening. Was awake from 12am-4am. I NEVER have trouble sleeping. Did use it again in the morning- resulted in dry mouth but no sleeplessness that night. I will use it again when my symptoms get as bad as they were- but will only do in the morning.
