Sinus, Ear, & Throat Treatments
“For the last 20 years, I have suffered from sinus infections every 3-4 months. Every time I got sick, I would get a sinus infection. I’ve missed weeks of work, taken multiple rounds of antibiotics and prednisone and seen several doctors without a change.
Last fall, Peter Koshland recommended that I use the Nasoneb nasal nebulizer with compounded sinus medications. This year, not only did I not get a sinus infection, but I didn’t get sick at all this winter. I am incredibly grateful to Koshland Pharm for my new lease on life.”

Topical sinus treatments from Koshland Pharm
For patients suffering from chronic, recurrent or resistant sinus conditions, a new delivery form for topical sinus treatments can be a real game-changer.
This new delivery form is a capsule, which is opened and emptied into saline, creating a solution that can be used for nebulization or irrigation. This capsule has as its base a dry powder excipient called LoxaSperse™, which is combined with the specific active pharmaceutical ingredients an individual patient needs, as determined by his/her doctor. This delivery form replaces the traditional aqueous solutions that had to be refrigerated and had short beyond-use-dates.
Advantages of LoxaSperse™ capsules:
- Longer beyond-use-date than aqueous solutions, requiring no refrigeration or preservatives
- Proprietary blend of xylitol and poloxamers reduces particles size and increases solubility and dispersibility of medications
- Validated through third party in vitro testing, available at pccarx.com/loxasperse
- Allow drugs to be delivered directly to the nasal and sinus cavities
- Contents of capsules are simply emptied into saline for irrigation or nebulization
The NasoNeb® Nasal Nebulizer
We carry the NasoNeb® Nasal Nebulizer as an option for delivery of topical sinus treatments. The NasoNeb® Nasal Nebulizer delivers a deep, penetrating aerosol to the nasal and paranasal sinus cavities with virtually no incidental pulmonary delivery of drugs and the risk of resultant complications common with small particle nebulizers. The NasoNeb® Nasal Nebulizer’s advantage, as demonstrated by peer-reviewed clinical data, derives from the unique combination of sufficient air flow, fluid volume, and particle size not found in any other device. The NasoNeb® Nasal Nebulizer takes 1-2 minutes to deliver your prescribed medication. Click here to learn more about the NasoNeb®, or call Koshland Pharm at 415.344.0600 to purchase.
