What is Combivent?
Combivent is a combination of two different medications—ipratropium bromide and salbutamol—used in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is a group of pulmonary diseases—most commonly emphysema and chronic bronchitis— that restrict airflow and make breathing difficult. Combivent is typically added as a second bronchodilator for patients who are already using another one regularly but are still experiencing bronchospasm.
Combivent is inhaled in aerosol form and comes in a metered-dose inhaler. The standard dosage is two inhalations four times per day, but patients can take up to 12 inhalations within a 24-hour period if additional inhalations are needed for symptomatic relief.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Living with COPD means living with a high level of stress. COPD patients know that they have an increased risk of heart disease, lung cancer, and disability. With the added financial stress stemming from high U.S. prescription drug costs, it’s not surprising that COPD patients often develop depression.
Simplefill can alleviate some of that stress by connecting COPD patients with programs that are dedicated to providing prescription assistance by bringing the cost of Combivent way down. You could potentially end up paying nothing at all depending on your insurance status and financial situation.
How does Combivent Work?
Combivent is a bronchodilator that combines ipratropium (an anticholinergic bronchodilator) and salbutamol (albuterol sulfate, a β2-adrenergic agonist). Both of these relax the muscles of the airways and open the airways to ease breathing, but they work better together than either one does alone.
