Flovent for COPD & Asthma

Flovent is a medication prescribed to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD) and asthma. It is not a rescue inhaler and is used daily to reduce the risk of asthma attacks and dangerous bronchospasms (airways spasms).

Flovent HFA is the aerosol version that disperses Flovent’s main ingredient, fluticasone. When fluticasone is inhaled, it decreases the swelling and inflammation in the airways.  Flovent Diskus works the same way, but the medication is dispersed in an inhaled powder. This type of inhaler does not propel fluticasone into the lungs. When used correctly, Flovent can prevent breathing symptoms and improve everyday function for those with COPD or asthma.

Cost of Flovent on My Drug Center

At the time of this article, there is no therapeutically equivalent version of Flovent HFA or Diskus. When a medication is submitted to the Food and Drug Administration for approval, it is granted a patent that allows the drug manufacturer to have exclusive production rights. Once this patent expires, other manufacturers can produce generic versions of the medication at cheaper prices.

Flovent HFA has a patent until August of 2026, so there will not be a generic version available for several years. The high price of brand-name of Flovent can make it difficult to afford, but you save time and money by using My Drug Center. Through our certified online pharmacy, you can expect the following prices for 50mcg Flovent HFA:

  • 120 doses: around $34
  • 240 doses: around $60
  • 360 doses: $75

For 50mcg Flovent Diskus, you may pay:

  • 60 doses: $59
  • 180 doses: $114

There are several more dosages available, so talk to your doctor to find the right dosage for you. Prices for Flovent vary depending on your insurance, but if you are paying for Flovent out-of-pocket, you can expect to pay over $50 for a 120 dose of brand-name Flovent HFA. That is almost $20 more than you would have to pay when using My Drug Center.

There may not be generic versions of Flovent inhalers available, but you can save money by using My Drug Center to order your prescriptions online. Learn more today.
