Generic Albuterol Inhaler

A great number of people around the world suffer from asthma symptoms. They have to use expensive inhalers to reduce bronchospasms or to control the symptoms of asthma. Many people are interested in the question of whether there exist less expensive medications that can be a good alternative to their usual medications.

There are two generic inhalers, which are indicated for the treatment of asthma conditions at the market of medical drugs. One of such inhalers is the inhaler Xopenex HFA Generic (Levalbuterol is an active ingredient). It is a rescue inhaler, which is intended for the immediate suppression of an asthma attack. This drug is also produced in the form of the drug Levalbuterol, which can be an excellent alternative for the Albuterol sensitive patients. Moreover, the drug Levalbuterol is also much cheaper and affordable for people, who have low income.

Recently, another inhaler under the name of AirDuo RespiClick, was produced by Teva Pharmaceutical Company. This medication is similar to Advair and it’s also intended for the patients over 12 years of age for the therapeutic treatment of asthma. Its components are fluticasone propionate and Salmeterol inhalation powder.

Nowadays, there are no any other generic inhalers for the treatment of asthma, except the generics for AirDuo RespiClick and Xopenex. Most albuterol inhalers are not available from the moment of the creation of HFA inhalers. Today, the inhaler Albuterol is available in the form of brand versions of such as ProAir, Proventil and Ventolin.

There are a number of inhaled steroids that are intended to maintain and control asthma symptoms. These are such inhaled steroids as QVAR, Flovent, Alvesco, Pulmicort and Asmanex. The inhalers Symbicort, Advair and Dulera are available only in the form of a brand medication. They combine long-acting bronchodilators and inhaled steroids.

Today, rescue and controlling asthma spray solutions are available in the forms of generic medications. The drug Albuterol Nebulizer is available only as a generic medication. The medication Pulmicort Respules has a generic version of Budesonide, which is an inhaled steroid that is used as a medication to control the symptoms during the treatment of asthma. Budesonide is available in the form of a brand medication and as a general sterile nebulizer solution.

Using an inhaler is usually necessary when a person suffering from asthma has a bronchospasm, which is very dangerous and demands using a special medication to suppress it.

Not everyone can afford to buy an expensive inhaler, which is prescribed by the doctor. If your brand inhaler is too expensive and you want to find another alternative medication, which can be cheaper, then there is the possibility of purchasing a cheaper prescription alternative. It is recommended to consult your doctor about more affordable inhalers that may be a good alternative for you. Tell your doctor about your financial status.

You can contact your insurance company and find out the information about the prices of other rescue inhalers that you can afford according to the insurance plan. If your insurance plan allows you to buy a cheaper drug, then you should consult the doctor and ask him if it’s possible to replace the prescription with the one, which is cheaper. You can also look through the website of the pharmaceutical company that produces the inhaler you need and to find out if they may offer you any discount programs for low-income people.
