Asthma, COPD, Chronic Bronchitis & lung disease drug prices lower from Canada

Nearly 37 million Americans suffer from respiratory illnesses says the American Lung Association. Cases of the most common respiratory diseases in America could be higher according to U.S. Health and Human Services data and are on the rise:

  • Asthma, 25 million +

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), 14.8 million

  • Chronic Bronchitis, 8.9 million +

  • Emphysema, 3.5 million +

  • Lung Cancer, 541,000

  • Approximately 12 million people have not yet been diagnosed

Ask any patient with a respiratory illness and they will tell you that the costs of their medications are far too high. Annual health care expenditures for asthma alone are estimated at $20.7 billion. Prices for prescription drugs in the U.S. continue to rise.

Respiratory Prescription Drugs Are Cheaper from Canada

Alan from New York tells CPPI, “My Symbicort inhaler for asthma costs $250 per month in the U.S. When I order the same inhaler through a Canadian pharmacy, it only costs $46. Both inhalers are made by Astra Zeneca.”

Rita from Florida says, “I have two lung conditions, one is COPD and the other Bronchiectasis. I am on numerous meds for my conditions. My Spiriva is between $350.00-550.00/monthly in the US. Ordering it from Canada costs $185.00 for 90 days supply. I am so thankful I found an online pharmacy in Canada, I couldn’t afford it otherwise.”
