  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Asthma)
  • Side effects
    Mild (Dry mouth)
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 250 mcg-50 mcg Daily
Advice & Tips: I'm supposed to take Advair twice daily but due to outrageous cost I only take once a day. I have to pay over $300.00. I also recommend using this right before you brush your teeth. That way you are getting it out of your mouth. It causes thrush if you don't rinse well. I think it might be contributing to some small amount of recently discovered cataracts:-(
Cost: $200+ monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Asthma)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 250 mcg-50 mcg Daily
Advice & Tips: the side effects sound scary to me so I only use it once a day. If I am getting sick or going through allergy attacks I will start using it twice a day. I am currently on a plan to get free Advair. I think what they charge is SINFUL! We have to pay our own insurance being self employed and I couldn't afford my meds from the awful economy.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 250 mcg-50 mcg Daily
Advice & Tips: It works extremely well. However, I have run into a problem with getting all the medication into my lungs. Bummer my doctor said there is no liquid form for Advair Discus. Also for each discus my co-pay is $90 each!! I tried to go without it, but I had too many flares during the night.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
