Pharmacy Pearls: Generic Inhalers

June 24th, 2019 | Pharmacy Pearls

This edition of Pharmacy Pearls highlights the availability of several generic maintenance inhalers now on the market and how to ensure patients get the least expensive formulation at the pharmacy. The goal is to increase patient access to these inhalers, so we encourage the use of the generics whenever possible and Symbicort when the generics can’t be filled for a patient. The other brand name inhalers in the ICS/LABA class (Advair, Breo Ellipta, Dulera) remain expensive and are generally on higher insurance tiers.
