I use Advair 250/50 to control my asthma. The cost of this inhaler, even the generic one is over a hundred dollars. By the time rent , recurring bills and food are paid for I’m lucky to afford 5 of my 7 medications let alone all 7! Prices are out of control! Pricing for drugs must be affordable. I have gone months without my asthma medication and it is very scary!
Hi, Nancy, I hear you on how expensive it can be to afford the meds you need to breathe. AAFA has a Patient Assistance Page listing several programs that may help you. Are you on a commercial or employee based insurance? Or are you on Medicare? Also, generic versions of Advair have been approved: GSK, Maker of ADVAIR DISKUS®, Announces Authorized Generic FDA Approves First Generic ADVAIR DISKUS® for Asthma Treatment Can you talk to your pharmacist to see if this generic might be available...
Each May since 1984, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has declared May to be National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. This month is dedicated to teaching others about asthma and allergies to create more awareness and understanding. We also want to help people see beyond asthma and allergies. This year, we aim to do just that through our themes, “More Than Asthma” and “More Than Food Allergies.”
National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month is under way! Thank you for all you’re doing to help us raise awareness about asthma and allergies. There's still time to enter our More Than Asthma photo sharing contest! By sharing your photo, you can raise awareness and have a chance to win a “healthier home” package.
During National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, there are many ways to educate others about asthma and allergies and what it’s like to live with them. We offer several tools and ideas to help you get involved. As part of this year’s focus, More Than Asthma, we want to highlight Leo Ignacio "Nacho" Adams. Faced with severe asthma from since he was an infant, Nacho's determination helped him become an active teenager, despite the odds.
