ASL Pharmacy's Sinus Science program has observed positive results utilizing Itraconazole as an alternative to Amphotericin B for treating Allergic Fungal Sinus Infections. The benefits of our micronized formula may also be enhanced when proceeded by a corticosteroid.
1.Itraconazole Micronized Formulation
a)Our aerosolized suspension contains 40mg Itraconazole per 4ml volume (0.9% NaCl base)
b)Viable alternative when Amphotericin B is not covered by insurance or desired results are not achieved
c)Sealed in unit dose vials lab tested for 60 day stability
d)Minimal side effects: aerosolized Itraconazole is generally more tolerable than Amphotericin B
e)May be prepared with a surfactant ingredient
2.Dual Sequential Therapy
a)Sequential use of Mometasone or Betamethasone followed by Itraconazole appears to increase medication deposition and improve patient outcomes
b)Biofilm: ASL is currently compounding specific ingredients to be administered prior to an antibiotic (or antifungal) for the reduction of biofilm. Call for more details.
