The price of an inhaler in the United States typically ranges from $50 to $200. Costs may vary depending on location and insurance coverage, as well as on medication dosage and brand.
An inhaler is a device that contains medicine used for the treatment of asthma symptoms such as coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. The average price of an inhaler in the United States is considerably higher than in other developed countries. Asthma sufferers in the UK can buy certain inhalers over the counter for around £3; however, inhalers in the United States are available by prescription only and can cost anywhere from $5 to $50 with insurance or up to $300 without insurance, as of 2015. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America may provide monetary assistance to uninsured patients who need help affording their inhalers.
