I'm looking into the prices too. With the switch to the HFA versions of Albuterol the cost is going up for everybody.
There aren't any generic versions available. X
openex is a tier 2 rx for me as is Proventil HFA (albuterol). So why not get the drug with less side effects if it costs the same. As I understand it X
openex doesn't make your heart rate go up like the regular albuterol inhalers.
I'd like to know why my insurance has Ventolin HFA as a tier 3. It actually costs less than Proventil HFA and it has a counter built in. Which I think is way cool. I hate keeping track of how many times I've used a specific inhaler as I have 6 in use at any given time.
