Re: GSK to Offer Generic Version of Ventolin HFA Albuterol Inhaler

will it have a counter? there is an issue with having hundreds of students with asthma in our school system and no counter in the back of the rescue inhaler.....do we guess if there is enough medication left? the inhalers go back and forth with the students in the high school so you don't know how many times they are being used, they can be out of medication or close to running out and we won't know until there is a problem.....with the younger ones, the parent usually brings in the inhaler...

Georgianna, the full prescribing information leaflet that GSK linked to in the press release above says this: However, I will note that this looks like they have linked to the brand name Ventolin HFA prescribing leaflet. Since they say that the medication is the same and has the same instructions for use as the Ventolin HFA, I'm assuming that it will be the same with a counter.

I just did a quick lookup using goodrx.com for the Generic of ProAir® HFA (albuterol sulfate) Inhalation Aerosol and it costs about $26 with their coupon at Walmart, Publix and CVS. Last time I bought a Ventolin without insurance it was $70 so the TEVA version is about 1/3 the price of Ventolin Same lookup for the highest dose of the Generic of AirDuo RespiClick and it comes up between $52-$60 using the goodrx coupon as well. Last Advair Diskus I bought without insurance was $236 with a...

Trust me, GSK is not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts as they don't have hearts. Just another greedy pharmaceutical company bilking the american public. They are probably losing market share to TEVA Pharmaceutical who is based out of Jerusalem, Israel. TEVA got FDA approval for a bunch of generic drugs back in early 2018.and makes a both a commercial and generic version of an albuterol inhaler that is available now in the USA. I lost my job and insurance back in Dec 2017 and...

I contacted my insurance company, Tufts, very happy that finally there is a generic Advair cost includes a $400 deductible per year then each discus is about $150. Not surprisingly, they told me that the generic isn't available on my plan. Ya. And if I wanted to, I could ask for an exception so that it's avaiable on my plan. Then, if it's approved it's TIER FIVE. The brand name Advair is tier four. So Tufts would charge me even more for the generic, IF they approved it for my plan. I've...

Also, could you check with your doctor and let your doctor know that, due to cost, you are not able to take your medications as directed? Your doctor may be able to help you figure out alternative medications. AAFA has a great blog post series on complementary medicine. The first blog post in the series is called: AAFA Explains: What Is the Difference Between Alternative and Complementary Medicine?

Sadaya, thanks for letting us know this information. You were smart to check with your insurance company and see if and how they would cover the generic version. Are you eligible for any of the programs on AAFA's patient assistance page ?
