Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is an inhaler prescribed to treat patients with asthma. Asthma is a condition related of the lungs involving airway constriction and inflammation that makes it difficult to breathe; it can be life threatening. Dulera contains two separate medications. One works by decreasing airway constriction while the other reduces inflammation. It is intended as maintenance treatment and is not for use during an acute asthma attack.
There is no generic available for Dulera. Without insurance, patients can expect to pay over $300 for a month’s supply. Considering that most patients prefer to have more than one inhaler available, those costs can skyrocket. Even patients with insurance can find co-pay costs adding up; there is no cure for asthma and prescriptions for inhalers can be long term.
