Asthma is a common but serious condition. It inflames and narrows your lungs’ airways and makes it hard to breathe. Of course oxygen is needed to maintain life, so suffering from asthma can introduce life-threatening conditions. It can’t be “outgrown”; it can get better (especially for growing children) or worst, but it never goes away. There is no cure, but there are treatments.
- Tightness in your chest
- Shortness of breath
- Coughing, especially early in the morning or at night.
What Causes Asthma?
Asthma triggers vary from person to person. For some, it could be exposure to an allergen such as dust, pollen, mold spores or pet dander. For others, it could be exercise-induced. Either way, an inhaler is used to open up the airways to make breathing easier, but these inhalers are not cheap. That’s why the approval of a generic asthma inhaler is great news!
Commitment to Low Cost Health Care
Advair Diskus inhaler now has a generic version that costs less than the name brand. It’s been approved for twice daily treatment for patients age 4 and older who have asthma and to maintain well-controlled COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) issues. The new inhaler comes in three strengths and works just like the name brand medication does.
