Medications for asthma are very expensive. With the increased expense following the CFC to HFA transition, many people suffering from asthma are having trouble affording their medications. Fortunately, by using drug coupons or by qualifying for a patient assistance program, one can obtain their asthma prescription drugs for free or at a significantly lowered cost.
Most drug coupons can be obtained by using a computer with internet connection and a printer. Consumers need to find a website that offers printable prescription coupons which they can present to their local pharmacies to receive discounts on their prescription drug purchases. Drug coupons can be used to lower their medication’s price, to receive free samples of drugs, or to reduce co-pay. Some prescription coupons have one time value while there are others that can be reused. Sometimes, the doctors themselves give eligible patients prescription coupons. Aside from doctors and from the internet, patients can also get prescription coupons directly from the drug manufacturers. Some drug manufacturers require the consumers to contact them through telephone call and request for prescription coupons or prescription assistance.
Typically, generic drug companies do not offer drug coupons as their products already cost less than the name brand drugs. However, there are insurance companies that occasionally offer discounts on some generic drugs.
