What is Trelegy?
Trelegy combines three different drugs into a single inhaled medication prescribed for adults with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. COPD is an umbrella term for several chronic lung diseases, most notably emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and refractory asthma. The three medications included in Trelegy are fluticasone furoate, umeclidinium bromide, and vilanterol.
Trelegy is used for maintenance treatment and will not stop an acute episode of breathing difficulty, so patients taking it typically also need a rescue inhaler.
What does Simplefill Provide?
COPD, the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S., is a serious, progressive disease that has a negative impact on one’s quality of life. The breathing difficulties it causes are debilitating, and acute flare-ups can be life-threatening. As COPD progresses over time, patients may eventually require supplemental oxygen. In short, life with COPD is stressful, especially when money is tight, and stress is known to exacerbate the symptoms associated with the disease.
Simplefill can relieve some of the stress experienced by COPD patients, specifically the stress that comes from not being able to pay for costly COPD medications without sacrificing other essentials. We know that prescription assistance is available and can dramatically lower the cost of Trelegy, but many COPD patients are unaware or don’t know how to get the help they need. So we’ve made it our mission to connect those who need prescription assistance with the programs offering it.
How Does Trelegy Work?
The component drugs contained in Trelegy work in different ways. Fluticasone furoate is a corticosteroid that suppresses the body’s immune system, thus reducing inflammation in the airways (bronchi). Umeclidinium is a long-acting muscarinic antagonist that works as a bronchodilator to open up the bronchi. Vilanterol is a long-acting beta-agonist that also causes bronchodilation.
