What should I do if I miss a dose of mometasone furoate?

If you forget to apply a dose of mometasone furoate, it's okay to give yourself an application as soon as it's convenient. Most people use this medication once a day.

If your doctor has instructed you to use mometasone furoate more than once a day, wait at least a few hours before applying another dose.
