Simplefill is committed to helping Americans who are struggling to pay for the prescription medications they need to manage chronic medical conditions, such as COPD. Continue reading to learn about our Incruse Ellipta patient assistance program and apply today.
What Is Incruse Ellipta?
Incruse Ellipta (Umeclidinium bromide) is an inhaled medication prescribed for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). COPD is an umbrella diagnosis for chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. Swelling and inflammation of the airways makes breathing difficult for people with COPD.
Incruse Ellipta is self-administered through inhalation, usually once daily. It is used preventively and is not to be used as a rescue inhaler in the event of a sudden, acute episode of breathing difficulty.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Life with COPD, which can be life threatening, is unpredictable. Taking a prophylactic medication like Incruse Ellipta every day, without fail, goes a long way toward preventing acute attacks that can be both frightening and dangerous. Those who can’t afford to maintain an uninterrupted supply of the drug may have to sacrifice other necessities to pay for this essential medication, and Simplefill doesn’t believe that should be their only option.
Simplefill strives to keep that from happening by raising awareness of prescription assistance and connecting people who need it with the programs that can provide it.
How Does Incruse Ellipta Work?
In people with COPD, the bronchioles in the lungs become clogged with mucus and the alveoli become damaged. The active ingredient in Incruse Ellipta, umeclidinium bromide, is a muscarinic receptor antagonist that blocks the muscarinic (M3) receptors that control the contraction of muscles. This helps relax the muscles of the airways, keeping them open and making it easier to breathe.
