How much is Advair HFA with insurance?

How much does Advair HFA cost without insurance?

What is Advair HFA?

Advair HFA is a prescription medication used to lessen and prevent the symptoms of asthma in adults and children 12 years and older. If you have asthma, your doctor may have prescribed Advair HFA to you. It’s an aerosol medication you take by inhaling it into your airways and lungs using an inhaler, usually twice a day. It reduces inflammation and relaxes muscle tissue, helping to open up your airways and lungs, making it easier to breathe. This can give you daily relief from your asthma symptoms and make asthma attacks less likely.

Advair HFA active ingredients

Advair HFA contains two active ingredients, called fluticasone propionate and salmeterol. When inhaled, these ingredients work together to open up your lungs and airways.

Fluticasone propionate is a type of corticosteroid. When you inhale Advair Diskus, molecules of fluticasone propionate attach to areas on the surface of the cells in your airways and lungs called glucocorticoid receptors. This stimulates the receptors, making them produce lower amounts of the substances that trigger inflammation and greater amounts of anti-inflammatory proteins. This helps to reduce inflammation throughout your lungs and airways.

Salmeterol is a medication called a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist (LABA). It attaches to areas on the outside of muscle tissue in your airways and lungs called beta-2 receptors. This stimulates the receptors, causing them to relax the muscle tissue, opening up your lungs and airways.

Advair HFA side effects & Advair HFA drug interactions

As with all medications, Advair HFA can cause side effects. The most common side effects caused by Advair HFA include:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea (feeling sick)
  • Vomiting (being sick)
  • Throat irritation
  • Hoarseness and changes to your voice
  • An increase in upper respiratory chest infections

Sometimes, Advair HFA can cause more serious side effects. These are rarer but can include:

  • A weakened immune system, making you more vulnerable to infections, including serious infections like tuberculosis
  • Reduced adrenal gland function (adrenal insufficiency) that can be fatal in serious cases
  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication can cause swelling in your face, mouth, and throat, which can make it difficult to breathe
  • A sudden worsening of your asthma symptoms, including asthma attacks (paradoxical bronchospasm)
  • Fungal infections (candida/thrush) in your mouth and throat – this is less likely if you rinse your mouth out with water after taking your Advair HFA
  • Increased blood pressure
  • A fast and/or irregular heartbeat
  • A thinning and weakening of bones (osteoporosis)
  • An increased risk of eye problems, including glaucoma, cataracts, and blurred vision
  • An increased risk of developing pneumonia if you also have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Slowed rates of growth in children

Advair HFA can interact with other medications. Tell your prescribing physician about all drugs you’re taking, particularly:

  • Any other medications taken to treat asthma or other breathing problems
  • Any other medications that contain steroids
  • Any other medications that contain a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist LABA
  • Any medications taken to treat bacterial, viral, or fungal infections, including an HIV infection, such as ketoconazole, itraconazole, ritonavir, nelfinavir, or cobicistat

Advair HFA warnings & precautions

Advair HFA is a maintenance medication used every day to help you lessen and control your asthma symptoms. Advair HFA should not be used to treat sudden and severe onset of symptoms (a bronchospasm). Use your rescue inhaler to treat sudden and severe symptoms, or whatever rescue medication your doctor has prescribed to you.

Advair HFA isn’t suitable for everyone. Don’t take Advair HFA if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredients fluticasone and salmeterol
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Advair HFA (you can find these listed in the leaflet which comes with the medication)
  • Have sudden breathing problems, like an asthma attack. Use a rescue inhaler to treat sudden breathing problems
  • Are under 12 years of age

Talk to your doctor before taking Advair HFA if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Advair HFA
  • Have any problems with your immune system
  • Have any liver problems
  • Have any heart problems
  • Have diabetes
  • Have osteoporosis
  • Have high blood pressure
  • Have any thyroid problems
  • Have any eye problems, including cataracts or glaucoma
  • Have or have ever had any problems with your adrenal glands
  • Currently have any form of infection
  • Have recently been around someone who has measles or chickenpox
  • Have or have ever had a seizure
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication).

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
