Nasal spray compound medicine
BEGI Nasal Spray contains these 4 active ingredients: Bactroban (Mupirocin) 0.2%, Edetate Disodium (EDTA) 1%, Gentamicin 0.5%, and Itraconazole.
MARCoNS (multiple antibiotic resistant coagulase-negative staphylococci) is an antibiotic-resistant staph infection that dwells deep inside the sinus cavity in patients with biotoxin illness.
Since these resistant bacteria develop biofilm, it makes it challenging for many antibiotics to penetrate this biofilm. This provides shelter for the bacteria. BEGI nasal spray is a compounded medication for the treatment of biotoxin illness.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by the reliable Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and proven compounding treatments to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and nationwide.
What does BEGI Nasal Spray Contain?
BEGI nasal spray is an efficient treatment for the eradication of colonies of biofilm-forming MARCoNS found in the sinus cavity. BEGI nasal spray contains active ingredients which combine 2 antibiotics (Bactroban, Gentamicin) as well as the calcium chelator EDTA.
The EDTA breaks down the biofilm layer. This clears the route for the antibiotics to make a direct attack. Nasal sprays are available in 2 types of containers: pump bottles and pressurized canisters.
The various steps for pressurized canister use are as follows:
- Blow your nose gently and clear the mucus prior to using the medication.
- Ensure that the canister fits appropriately in its holder. Shake the canister many times just before you use it.
- Keep your head upright and breathe out slowly.
- Hold your nasal spray canister as illustrated in the image to the right. Use your finger to hold shut the nostril on the side not receiving the medication.
- Press the canister down as you start to breathe in slowly through the nose. Repeat all steps for the other nostril. In case you are spraying more than once in each nostril, repeat the steps 2 through 5.
- Try to avoid sneezing or blowing your nose immediately after using the spray.
The various steps for pump bottle use are as follows:
- Blow your nose gently to clear out the mucus before using the medication.
- Remove the cap and shake the bottle. While using the pump for the first time each day, you might have to “prime” it by spraying a few times into the air till a fine mist emanates.
- Tilt your head forward slightly and breathe out slowly.
- Use your thumb to hold the pump bottle at the bottom and your index and middle fingers to hold it on top. Place a finger from the other hand on the nostril not receiving the medication to close it (as shown in the drawing below).
- Squeeze the pump while starting to breathe slowly through the nose. You need to repeat these steps for the other nostril. In case you use more than one spray per nostril, repeat the steps 2 through 5.
- Avoid sneezing or blowing your nose immediately after using the spray.
- It is important to remember that the complete results of using the spray will take up to 2 weeks to become apparent.
- In case you are using a pressurized canister, remember to wash it at least one time a week.
- Ensure that you can sniff air through each nostril prior to spraying. If this is not the case, the medication will be wasted as it will not reach deep within your nose.
