Adults (18 years and older): The recommended dosage of XHANCE nasal spray is 1 spray (93 mcg of fluticasone propionate per spray) in each nostril twice daily (total daily dose, 372 mcg). A dose of 2 sprays (93 mcg of fluticasone propionate per spray) in each nostril twice daily may also be effective in some patients (total daily dose, 744 mcg). The maximum total daily dosage should not exceed 2 sprays in each nostril twice daily (total daily dose, 744 mcg).
Patients should use XHANCE at regular intervals since its effectiveness depends on regular use. Individual patients will experience a variable time to onset and different degrees of symptom relief.
The safety and efficacy of XHANCE when administered in excess of recommended doses have not been established.
Administer XHANCE by the intranasal route only, avoiding spraying directly on the nasal septum. Shake XHANCE before each use. Before initial use, prime XHANCE by first gently shaking and then pressing the bottle 7 times or until a fine mist appears. Direct the spray into the air, away from the face. When XHANCE has not been used for ≥ 7 days, prime the pump again by shaking and releasing 2 sprays into the air, away from the face.
XHANCE is delivered into the nose by actuating the pump spray into one nostril while simultaneously blowing (exhaling) into the mouthpiece of the device. To administer XHANCE, insert the tapered tip of the cone-shaped nosepiece deep into one nostril and form a tight seal between the nosepiece and the nostril. Next, place the flexible mouthpiece into the mouth, bending it as necessary to maintain a tight seal. Blow into the mouthpiece, and while continuing to blow, push the bottle up to actuate the spray pump. Continuing to blow through the mouth, but not inhaling or exhaling through the nose, at the time of actuation is important to achieve intended drug deposition. Repeat the process in the other nostril for a full dose.
