A Good RX analysis for Asthma inhalers shows prices have gone up 35% since 2013. One product, Advair has risen to nearly $500(!) during this short period of time. Had consumer costs risen with a 7% rate of inflation that inhaler would be priced at $299. These increases illustrate what is happening with prescription drug prices as a whole. Despite the fact insurance pays a portion, due to high deductible plans and other factors, more and more cash payment is coming out of our pockets. Something must be done to help us as it’s getting harder to breathe!
