An 84 year old friend is paying a fortune for Advair. I am hoping that there may be a generic equivalent or if not, another medication that we might try that might not be as costly for a person on a fixed income.

Currently, GlaxoSmithKline holds exclusive rights to make and sell Advair in the United States. There are so many different Advair patents listed with the FDA, it's hard to predict when a generic Advair will become available. To make matters more confusing, it is likely that legal battles could affect when a generic version becomes available.
