Symbicort is great, but very expensive. Is there a generic inhaler that will reduce my cost?

The first patent for Symbicort currently expires in September 2012. This is the earliest possible date that generic versions of the drug could become available.

Take care, maybe consult your doc who would prescribe a cheaper alternative, take care, please.

Best wishes!
