Study Shows How One Hospital Ensured Children Went Home with Asthma Medicine

AAFA Community Services ·
What health issue did the study examine? Families who leave a hospital with prescriptions for asthma medicine sometimes do not fill them. That can cause return trips to the emergency room for treatment. What do we know about this issue so far? Some families have trouble filling prescriptions after a hospital visit because of a lack of transportation, time or health insurance. Some hospitals have given patients medicine before they leave in an effort to reduce the number of return visits and...

Wow- this came as quite a surprise that the old inhaler is no longer available. The email and letter I received in the mail introducing the inhaler said NOTHING about discontinuing the old inhaler. Only through this post did I learn this. Extremely upsetting business practice on behalf of Teva. Does anyone have experience with this inhaler? My daughter is only 3 years old and we use a spacer- since this can't be used with a spacer just wondering how well it works for the little ones. Any...

That would be a great question to ask your doc -- but I understand why you wouldn't want to have an appointment just for this question. Why not put a call into the doctor's office and talk with the nurse? Or email your doctor through your portal? Another possibility: could you reach out to your pharmacist? Or if you guys use a respiratory therapist, to them? My pediatrician talked to us about going to a dry powder inhaler that didn't require a spacer because so often parents and kids don't...

My Qvar prescription is setup for auto-refill at Walgreens. A couple of days ago it was supposed to be refilled and the status changed to out of stock and backorder. A few days later it was filled and when I went in to pick it up, the pharmacist said something like the manufacturer changed. When I got home I discovered my prescription was changed to the new Qvar RediHaler. I'm looking forward to trying it out but I won't know for another 20 days until I use up my old Qvar.

Teva Pharmaceuticals and other inhaler manufacturers need to make an inhaler product that does NOT have these serious side effects. No Glaucoma, Cataracts, Adrenal Insufficiency, etc. wanted by me (SEE WARNINGS listed above). Jenny H. - Please Note: Product described above says 4 years of age and older.

Ann - it's very frustrating when meds have potential long term side effects. It's are really hard position for everyone with asthma to have to balance the trade off of meds to manage their asthma and potential side effects.

I use the QVAR respihaler too and for me, not having propellant in it made a huge difference. My lungs have never liked the prolellant but I've always managed because the steroid component took care of the issues I had but the new respihaler is MUCH better for me.

I agree with PLJOHNS comments. The new delivery works fine. I also like not having to use a spacer.

What to Do If You Can't Afford Your Asthma Medicines

Controlling your asthma so it doesn't control you is a key part of staying healthy. Avoiding asthma triggers to prevent flare-ups is important. So is carrying a quick-relief rescue inhaler everywhere you go. Long-term control medicines help you prevent and control asthma symptoms. But asthma medication can be expensive, whether or not you have insurance. If multiple members of your family have asthma, the cost is even greater.
