What is Proair?
Proair (salbutamol, also known as albuterol) is an inhaled bronchodilator used preventively and for quick relief of wheezing and shortness of breath. It is prescribed for adults and children who are at least four years old with asthma, including exercise-induced bronchoconstriction, or reversible obstructive pulmonary disease.
There are several types of Proair inhalers, one of which can be used in conjunction with a mobile app via Bluetooth technology to improve disease management.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Asthma and other diseases that cause breathing difficulties are typically chronic conditions requiring a lifetime of prevention and treatment of symptoms. The onset of those symptoms can be alarming, and every year, asthma causes over 4,000 deaths in the U.S.
People with asthma are well aware of the need to maintain an uninterrupted supply of the medications they rely on to prevent attacks and stop them when they occur. Given the high cost of prescriptions in the U.S., that may not always be possible.
At Simplefill, we don’t believe that anyone should have to worry about being able to pay for potentially life-saving medication like Proair. We know that prescription assistance is available, though many uninsured or underinsured people may not be aware that it is or know how to obtain it. Our mission is to connect the people who need help paying for essential medications with the programs offering that assistance.
How Does Proair Work?
Proair is a short-acting adrenergic receptor agonist. It triggers a process that ultimately lowers the intracellular concentration of calcium ions necessary for muscle contractions, thus relaxing the smooth muscles of the medium and large airways in the lungs. Proair also inhibits inflammatory cells in the airways to ease breathing.
