What is Proventil?
Proventil (salbutamol, which is another name for albuterol) is a medication commonly prescribed to prevent and to treat the breathing difficulties experienced by people with asthma and COPD. COPD is an umbrella term for a group of lung diseases, most notably chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
Proventil provides quick relief and can be used as a rescue inhaler.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill is dedicated to alleviating the stress experienced by people who need expensive medications to control chronic diseases like asthma and COPD. People with asthma and COPD know that they can suffer sudden respiratory distress, which is a heavy burden to carry. Asthma alone takes the lives of more than 4,000 people every year and contributes to nearly 7,000 more. People who are uninsured, underinsured, or experiencing other financial difficulties fear having to go without essential medications or make other sacrifices to fill their prescriptions.
Simplefill believes that is unacceptable. Nobody should have to risk their health or life because their medications are too expensive. That’s why we’re committed to connecting people who need help paying for medications like Proventil with the programs that offer assistance.
How does Proventil Work?
Proventil is a bronchodilator, which means that it opens up the airways in the lungs and makes it easier to breathe. It does this through a chemical process that reduces the level of calcium ions, which are essential for muscle contractions. Inhibiting muscle contractions allows the smooth muscle tissues of the airways to relax. Proventil also helps reduce inflammation in the airways.
