XHANCE® (fluticasone propionate) nasal spray

Xhance is a prescription medicine used for the treatment of nasal polyps in adults please see the important safety information at the end of this video david’s story a patient’s perspective my name is david i’m 35 years old i live with my wife we’ve been together 16 years we were college sweethearts and we have a daughter who’s about 18 months now my family

Has always had issues with congestion so i thought maybe it was just our dna but at my annual physical the doctor would say you sound congested and i would just answer yeah that’s how i always sound i tried all kinds of nasal sprays for my congestion but none seemed to work to me most you know the most frustrating thing was just on a daily basis i wasn’t able

To kind of enjoy the use of an important sense which is smell and and to me that’s that’s so important because i love food i love cooking and drinking what’s funny is my mom always says even from a young age i just love to smell things and it sounds weird but like the smell of a good hand soap or my dad taught me to you know when when when he reads books he’ll

Open it and smell the pages after having my symptoms for so long i kind of just accepted them as a fact of life but one night i was having dinner with a friend who knew about my congestion and insisted that i should go see his ear nose and throat specialist it was really nice to have a recommendation from someone i trusted who basically told me hey i sounded

Like you and i was able to address it at my very first appointment the ent diagnosed me with something that i’d never heard of before nasal polyps the doctor used an instrument to show me my polyps on the video screen i remember thinking if this is my nose no wonder i can’t smell when my doctor recommended surgery it wasn’t something i was excited about at all

Surgery is expensive and money was a concern because insurance only covers a portion of the cost my doctor told me surgery may not be curative after my surgery and after i healed we discussed options for long-term management of my nasal polyps and that’s when he prescribed a stance his hands looked different and when my doctor explained how its hands worked

It was really compelling because of the way it’s administered the medicine has the potential to get to where the nasal polyps originate he showed me how you use your own breath to get the medicine into your nasal passage on a daily basis i can tell the difference in my symptoms with reduced congestion i can now appreciate the scent of lemon or lavender hand

Soap now i can enjoy the benefits of a 35 candle a cocktail my food my cologne it’s the small things that most people take for granted it’s great to be able to talk to others and know that i don’t sound congested it’s great to lay my head down at night and be able to keep my mouth closed when i go to sleep sometimes i think if i had treated my nasal polyps

Before i probably would have started enjoying these things a lot sooner important safety information do not use exhance if you are allergic to fluticasone propionate or any of the ingredients in exhance get emergency medical care if you get any of these signs of a serious allergic reaction rash hives swelling of your face mouth and tongue breathing problems or
