has anyone compared the inert ingredients in the nasal spray to those in the injection? I took one of those 20mg sprays apart, (used, of course) and the vial inside the plastic applicator is similar to the injectible... I think further research is in order (on us clusterheads' part) to see about the inert ingredients in the 20mg sprays... imagine the possibilities! If the tip on the board yields 3-2mg injections from 1-6mg injection, there is a potential for 8 - 10 (injectible doses) from the spray {less waste or spoilage}. My PPO allows for 6 sprays per month, or 6 injections, or 9 tabs. My wife is diabetic so there's plenty of new syringes around the house... just a thought! Of course, (here's the disclaimer) I do not recommend to anyone that they inject the nasal spray and I have yet to see any research on the matter, but, if anyone has checked on this, feedback would be greatly appreciated.
