What is Albuterol?
Albuterol is an inhaled medication widely used in the treatment of asthma, COPD (emphysema and/or chronic bronchitis), and other respiratory diseases. It comes in two main forms: a liquid solution for use in a nebulizer or an aerosol or powder used in an inhaler.
Albuterol is prescribed for patients of all ages to prevent breathing difficulties (wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing) and to treat them when they occur.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill provides some peace of mind for people who are dealing with the financial stress of paying out-of-pocket for medications like albuterol that are key to controlling chronic diseases. The breathing difficulties experienced by people with asthma or COPD can be life-threatening, and having an uninterrupted supply of albuterol is essential.
About one in thirteen people in the United States suffers from asthma, which is the most common chronic disease in children. About ten Americans die from asthma every day, and many of those deaths could have been prevented with proper treatment. Simplefill is addressing this situation by providing Albuterol patient assistance.
How Does Albuterol Work?
Asthma and COPD narrow the airways carrying air from the mouth or nose to the lungs. Albuterol is classified as a fast-acting bronchodilator, which means that it works by relaxing the surrounding muscles, thus opening up those constricted airways and providing relief within a matter of minutes.
