I'm trying to find out what the difference is between Xhance and Flonase, generic (fluticasone propionate) nasal spray.
For those who don't know: Xhance is fluticasone propionate with a different delivery system than the generic fluticasone propionate sold at a warehouse store. As you can see in the diagram, the Xhance delivery system is inserted in the nose and sprayed, while while the user simultaneously blows into the dispenser to presumably distribute the medicine further into the nasal cavity; while the generic medication is delivered as a simple nasal spray.
My wife's insurance won't cover her Xhance prescription, which is about $450 out of pocket a month. While generic in the standard nasal spray bottle is about $40 for a 3 or four month supply. So of course my question is, if we could get the same effect using the generic, if we were able to build a similar delivery mechanism; i.e. 3D printer, etc?
Anyone have any thoughts on this?
