Trelegy is a prescription medicine for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is used for treating asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema in adult people. It comes in an inhaler and inhalation powder form (Trelegy Ellipta) that combines three different medicines.
Trelegy Ellipta works by opening up the airways so people with these conditions can breathe more easily. It has an active ingredient treprostinil (also called TRO), which is a type of medicine called prostacyclin analogs. Treprostinil works by relaxing and opening up the airways in your lungs so you can breathe more easily.
This means you'll be able to do things like enjoy activities that require physical effort without as much difficulty as before taking Trelegy. It's important not to stop taking your medication without talking with your healthcare provider first because doing so may make your condition worse.
COPD is a chronic lung disease that can lead to progressive shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing. It can be caused by smoking, exposure to chemicals and dust in the air, or even viral infections. It can also be inherited from family members who have had COPD for many years. Symptoms of COPD include shortness of breath, coughing spells with phlegm production, wheezing during exercise, and an increased need for oxygen when resting or sleeping.
No, Trelegy is not an alternative to a rescue inhaler. A sudden breathing problem is a symptom that can occur due to many different conditions. It might be lung cancer, asthma, or something else entirely. Unfortunately, it's hard for doctors to diagnose the cause of your symptoms without more information about your medical history and current condition. That means you might have to go through several tests before they figure out what's going on and prescribe the right treatment plan for you.
Trelegy has been approved by the FDA for use in adults who need additional breathing support during activity when they have difficulty getting enough air into their lungs on their own. Can children use Trelegy?
Absolutely not! So, if you notice your child struggling to breathe, call for emergency medical help or use a medication that has been prescribed by a doctor. Trelegy's effects on children under 18 are yet to be determined.
Trelegy comes as inhaled powder and inhaler. How much you need will depend on your condition and the doctor's prescription. However, for general usage, the list price for a 30-day supply costs $601.861. You have to pay this cost if you don't have any health insurance or a Trelegy coupon.
There is no direct discount coupon for this medicine. You have to have a health insurance policy or Medicare/Medicaid coverage to receive it at a discount. For commercially insured patients, Trelegy offers a 12-month discount. As it's a GSK medicine, look into the manufacturer's website for eligible coupons.
Commercially insured patients can sign up on the Trelegy website to receive a Trelegy printable coupon card. Eligible people may receive the medicine for absolutely free for a maximum of 12 months. It's possible to save up to 2,400 in a year towards the cost of this medicine. If the patients don't have any insurance, they may receive a discount of up to $100 on a 30-day supply.
In both cases, the patients have to be 65 or older and they cannot be government beneficiaries or a Medicare policy holder.
To get a free Trelegy coupon or free trial, go to the GSK website. It gives free trial offers for certain medicines, so patients don't have to pay the entire cost out of pocket. There are certain criteria that you have to fulfill to be eligible for such offers. One good thing is that patients with or without insurance coverage can apply for these free samples. Also, if you are enrolled in a healthcare plan, ask the provider if they can manage free samples from GSK.
GSK offers 'Dollars Off Coupons' for some products. If you are eligible, you can get these coupons with or without insurance coverage. GSK does not extend this offer to Medicare or Medicaid holders. In fact, any user of a federal healthcare program will be automatically ineligible for this offer. You also cannot get these coupons if you are eligible for Medicare (but not enrolled yet).
The eligibility depends on various factors. Like many other pharmaceutical companies, GSK offers this program for uninsured, low-income, and under-insured patients. You have to be a US resident and without any prescription drug benefits to get into this program. You will get the details on the GSK website. Getting into this program will help you bear the cost of Trelegy Ellipta and Inhaler.
No. Trelegy does not offer discounts for patients enrolled in the Medicare or Medicaid program. Only commercially insured and people with no insurance can sign up for its coupon program. However, this is just a savings coupon, not health insurance. The patients have to pay the costs that the coupon does not cover.
There is no specific Trelegy Ellipta discount code. But you can receive some discounts when buying from a pharmacy or retailer. For example, with a valid prescription, you can get a 10% discount when buying from Walmart. On the other hand, Kroger Pharmacy lets you save up to 14%. You have to contact the specific retailer/pharmacy to find these coupons.
