Yes it's happened to me but it started with my albuterol about 3 years ago... so you've been lucky! Through my insurance I have to purchase 3 month supplies by mail order. Generics are FREE... and all others are $50! So now not only do I have to fork out $50 for the Advair but for the albuterol too... emoticon It's all very frustrating! People with healthy lungs don't realize they money they are saving!!! I can't imagine $700 a month! I'd loose my home!

For me the generic is just as expensive as the brand name. My 2 yr old is doing updraft treatments and the generic to Pulmicort respules is just as expensive as the name brand. It cost me 500 dollars a month to keep her gong. Thank goodness for the drug help programs that help you pay for them. Between ADD meds and Sarah's asthma med I would be spending almost 700 a month just for two meds.

I went to refill my ProAir inhaler yesterday using the generic albuterol inhaler and the CVS pharmacy told me that they no longer make a generic and I was going to have to pay for the name brand. Has anyone else run into this issue?
