Since 2013, the average price of asthma inhalers has gone from $280 all the way up to over $375 now. The average cash price for Symbicort, a popular asthma inhaler, is currently $346 dollars, according to GoodRx. Brand name medications prices are going up across the board, health insurance companies are covering less and less medications, and it’s no wonder why so many people are searching for a way to get their medications at an affordable price.
