Advair cost without insurance

Common Questions and Answers about Advair cost without insurance


Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with early copd. Since I do not have health insurance, i go to a clinic. The physician's assistant has prescribed singular for my copd, I don't feel that it is helping me very much. I mostly have shortness of breath & coughing in the evening. This disease frightens me because I don't feel I am getting the right medical advice. I asked about simbicor & spiriva and was told that those meds are for later stages of copd.
Avatar m tn Advair, singulair, benedryl, Fexofenadene and Nasonex, I'm doing ok... Plus Albueterol and Combivent --- PLUS I'm down to the last 3 days of now single Prednisone But if I let it lapse - even an hour on the time of the Benedryl, fexofenadene - then I'm hitting the bathroom for steam - looking for guifensin - chugging the inhalers and coughing non-stop. So - it's just keeping it in check... It will pass soon -- Another 10 days or so...
Avatar f tn I also take advair and use the nebulizer 3-4 times per day.It appears that I do not respond well to the meds. The cough has become constant and the lidocaine was suggested to help surpress the cough. What I am concerned about is Lidocaine safe to inhale at home without the supervision of my Dr? Can there be any serious side effects? I am also having a hard time trying to find a pharmacy that will fill the prescription.
1000946 tn?1253811447 It is not covered by insurance but you can go to the website and get a discount card. The cost even without the card is about what you'd spend on cigarettes per month so the cost is NOT prohibitive. The only drawback is that is causes must eat when taking it and have anti nauseal meds on hand. Good luck to all who have quit and to those who are pondering it. Please consider the cost to your health and also that you are supporting the cigarette manufacturers...
Avatar m tn Were you put on oxygen before or after you took Advair and Spiriva? Advair was killing me (literally) and I quit Spiriva after only taking it briefly because it turned my lung secretions to glue. It is very drying. Anyway, if you went on oxygen after taking this garbage, find another doctor.
380558 tn?1309045987 (can't remember how many cigarettes I had yesterday- maybe like 7 or 8) But dang good from having a whole PACK! lol I go to my doc on Monday, hopefully my insurance will cover the Chantix. I've been hearing some really good things about it.. I spoke with a lady/RN from The American Lung Association and she explained to me that NUMEROUS quit from taking Chantix.. It'll work for me, or I'll just take something else.. LOL I'm determined to do this, and it'll just be a matter of time.. that's all..
1187071 tn?1279373298 She also said that a lady she treats was in the other day and yesterday the office got a letter from her insurance company saying they are watching everything that lady is doing because she is on pain meds cause of pain. It makes me wonder if I am on that list and if the big guys are watching my every move which really ***** cause she deals with chronic pain like so many of us.
Avatar m tn I lost my insurance several years ago and had to start using Primatene Mist to control my asthma as doctor fees and prescriptions cost way too much when you're without insurance. As you may know, Primatene is going off the market December 31st of this year (2011) so I was in a quandary.
Avatar f tn If 32 per cent of human females could not deliver without surgery the human race would never have survived. So why are so many C-sections performed? Well, for one thing, the doctor makes twice as much money. For another he is not really fond of delivering in the small hours when most babies are born, or rmissing out on his weekends. As concerns men, prostate cancer is routinely treated with surgery.
Avatar n tn My LLMDs do not take insurance but my Rx's are covered, so I mainly only pay out of pocket for office visits. Well worth the cost to me since without Lyme treatment I don't think I'd be able to work at all by now. Also, while even serious symptoms from Lyme and co-infections can improve/resolve with treatment, it is not always a quick fix. Just keep in mind that the body can need time to heal.
690549 tn?1288886321 Just maybe something inside me felt that after all the MS had handed me over the years, and the fact I had cost my insurance nothing in drugs over the years, modest pharmacy bills, and seldom even many diagnostic tests, I was *entitled* to special help that would make things easier for me again. A chair had been looking quite good to me for some years. There was no question my arms were too weak for a manual chair when I couldn't even push a shopping cart anymore since it hurt my arms so badly.
Avatar m tn The last time she was at the hospital she was there for 6 days and was released when her O2 Sat. was 94 without Oxygen. Has anyone dealt with this situation? My E-mail address is ***@****. Thank you for any replies.
Avatar n tn Enbrel cost me (my insurance company actually) $1435.88 per month. That is a series of 8 shots which I take 2 per week. But Enbrel is getting ready to go to a once a week shot. I've already got the newsletter telling me that but of course I don't know what it will do to the price. Hopefully get it down some. I started Enbrel when it was in testing stages. Was involved with the manufacture and kept records for them and stuff so got some of my treatment for free.
667923 tn?1421466324 I know exactly where you are coming from. I was without insurance when I landed in the hospital the first time from the CHF. The bill was well over $50,000.00. Then, after I was diagnosed, it was next to impossible to attain health care insurance due to pre-existing, and I didn't/do not qualify for anything. I now pay almost $600/mo for insurance, and pay off the CHF bills as I can. Putting food on the table is tough now days.
Avatar n tn My nodes got better, my migraines stopped without antibiotics this time. It seems like this weird thing happened after i took these two strong antibiotics...Im staying away from them. Ive heard we can insist on a sinus culture taken which will indicate if it is a fungus or not. Many times we breathe in tiny particles in stores, schools, work, etc... which lodge in our sinus' but are fungal in nature, and cannot be cured with antibiotics. Antibiotics actually make fungi grow, also create it.
Avatar f tn I'am now looking a any natural herbs of meds. Also any ideas to helping your child to sleep through the night without itching and bleeding all night. That's just how bad it is. any ideas??
Avatar m tn I am a 32-year-old male diagnosed with Acid-reflux and reflux related asthma in June 2004. The medicine I take for Asthma is Advair (250/50) once every 12 hours and Aciphex 20mg for my reflux. I cannot get my reflux under control.

2214462 tn?1339431583 But even so, you have nothing to lose by calling UCLA and asking what is the cost of a consultation. Tell them what insurance you have. My reasoning is as follows: if you go there with all your blood work, hopefully you'll receive a diagnosis and a treatment plan. UCLA will have no need to do any other diagnostic tests. What you need is to be put on the right road.
Avatar m tn I'll go back there and ask. I was happy to find that the Medrol (generic) only cost $4.00 at Walmart. I did the Barium Swallow Test Sunday. I don't think they will find any problem there because the mucous was all that was hard to swallow.
Avatar n tn Thank heavens for health insurance. Anyway, now I am back on Advair/500, Singulair, Albuterol, Nexium, Fexofenadine, Baby aspirin, Tussionex and vitamins daily; so keep up the spirits and will keep you all posted.
Avatar m tn it's her perscription of chantix i'm taking now...i have one at the pharmacist in my name...but her insurance paid for hers...mind doesn't) and i had to ride a long time while she smoked beside me. that didnt bother me too much while she was doing it...but i admit...i've felt some anxiousness today. I have checked out whyquit....i guess...according to them...these feelings are good...tells me my body is healing. One thing that puzzles me....after cutting way back on coffee and no smokes...
530191 tn?1214166411 I am currently uninsured. As SOON as I do get medical insurance I am going to an immunologist/allergist to make sure its not some strange allergy and try to get on the immunosuppressant drugs to help the this point I HAVE to. Nothing like urticaria to drive a woman crazy.
Avatar n tn The cardiologist thinks it's acid reflux which can cause wheezing, coughing, shortness of breathe, etc; even without having heartburn which has not been a problem for me. I have been on Nexium for 5 days now, and I feel slightly better, but was up all last night because I couldn't breathe, then around 3:30am I was fine! I have an echocardiogram shceduled for this afternoon. I'm sure it will be fine too. I've also read that anemia or hypothyroidism can cause this.
192055 tn?1263559137 The pulminologist has given me a steroidal enhaler (Advair) at the max dosage to take bi-daily for the next month or two. It's been a couple of weeks and I don't see any improvement. Does anybody know what this problem might be? Has anyone had a similar experience to this? I really need help because I want to knick this problem in the butt.......It is miserable being 26, so young and living with this.
Avatar m tn My lung specialist says its just all in my head and that i have this because ive become aware of my breathing pattern. i've used advair, singular and breathing pumps for asthma with no results. when im sitting or laying down its seems to be fine but when i stand up or move it kicks in more. I'm losing hope on what's going on with me. Does anyone have this?If so can anyone recommend anything else i should look for?
436516 tn?1382388265 I was prescribed Ventolin (for emergency cant breathe situations!) and Advair. I found the advair diskus was no good, but the inhaled advair seemed to help a bit. If its related to lung infections, I've got tons of those to pick from so cant really narrow it down. Right now it feels like I've got a web of spider silk or cat hair in the back of my throat and its just not clearing. Did anyone else find a solution that works?
