Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Montair is having montelukast. It is anti allergic drug.
Metatop nasal spray is having mometasone. It is inhaled corticosteroids.
Both are drug of choice for allergic rhinitis.
Both are safe for long term use.
For nasal polyp, surgical removal of polyps is an option.
But you can wait for this. Give montair and Metatop for 6-8 months and recheck polyp size. Sometimes with anti allergic drugs, these polyps regress in size. So no surgery is needed. But if they persist even ulster treatment then surgical removal is the option.
Don't worry, she will be alright. No long term side effects of these drugs.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your daughter. Thanks.
