I’m going to be frank, I’m very tired so I’m doing talk to text. At the end of 2019 I had started getting the infusions and I did receive them up until about the time of my father‘s passing in May of this year.
Now at sometime around December the clinic prescribe me troches to help me extend time between visits to get IV treatments. I was given kind of my own discretion she allowed me to take two 100 mg troches Any days I wanted for up to a total of 10 troches per week.
I have been switched to a new provider and told that the troche provider is only giving it for pain. I will be receiving the equivalent amount per month in a compounded nasal spray.
The psychiatric nurse practitioner sent me a message today to let me know that I will likely have to experiment with my dosage. Currently I would have to do five sprays (.1ml each) in each nostril over the course of 15 minutes.
I feel like that is quite an impossible dose to get a stick in your nose. I also understand that you’re not supposed to sniff it towards your sinuses but rather toward your septum; does anyone have any advice for this?
Basically I am soliciting any and all advice experiences and stories regarding the compounded nasal spray. Thank you
