How much can I save on my nebulizer medication?
Nebulizer medications are used to manage asthma. For asthma patients that have difficulty using an inhaler, nebulizers change medication from a liquid to a mist so that it can be more easily inhaled into the lungs.

Nebulizer Patient Assistance Programs
PharmacyChecker.com also offers a search tool for patient assistance programs. Many pharmaceutical companies offer aid with the cost of medications through patient assistance programs, but this is only for those living in the U.S. These programs do not accept everyone—they often have strict eligibility requirements having to do with your income and are most helpful to those with incomes below $30,000 a year.Updated November 26, 2019
