I've had asthma for about 6 years now. I was using Symbicort, Singular, and the rescue inhaler. I was put on Symbicort after going to the asthma doctor when I kept complaining of pain on the left side above my heart. Primary doctor did EKG and it was fine. I stopped taking the Symbicort about a year ago as my co-pay for each med is $30 and I couldn't afford them.
Now its acting up again with the chest pain. I went to the doctor for strep throat a couple of months ago and complained about the chest pain and EKG was normal. She wanted me to see a cardiologist and I was thinking about since heart disease does run in my family. But its getting more frequent and the rescue inhaler isn't helping and neither is taking the Singular again. I don't know what to do and really can't afford to be taking 3 medicines that cost $90 a month on my limited income.
I'm thinking about taking some presidone my mother has hoping that it might work instead of another asthma medicine. Or is there a cheaper medicine that I can take that will work? Thanks.View Thread
