What if I Can’t Afford My Asthma Medication?

Asthma inhalers and other types of respiratory medications vary in price.

Some are less costly, and some are very expensive. If you cannot afford the cost of your asthma inhaler or other respiratory medication you can:

  • Shop around. Compare prices at other pharmacies or check prices at GoodRx.
  • Contact the manufacturer for patient assistance programs.
  • Ask your doctor to prescribe an alternative. Sometimes less costly alternatives are available.

If you are still unable to afford the prescribed medication, talk with your doctor. It’s very important to use your medication as prescribed. Be sure to ask your doctor for help you so you don’t go without taking your asthma medication or other respiratory medication.
