New COPD med
Sunday, December 16, 2018
I just started Trelegy Ellipta on a one month trial and it works great. I hardly use my rescue inhaler at all now. With that positivity comes some negativity, it cost $609 a month here and $127 in Canada which is beyond my budget on SS retirement. I contacted the drug co. to see about a break as they do have them. I was told "sorry, you are over 65 and on Medicare, can't help you". My prescription plan doesn't cover it so looks like I will be back to Symbicort next month. I can't expect my Pulmonary dr. to supply me with free samples indefinitely. Next month when I see my dr. I will askhim to contact my prescription plan to see if they will cover it at I price I can afford with my copay.
