Xopenex no longer funded by insurance

Hi- I recently went to renew a xopenex prescription for my 3 yr old son. The pharmancy told me that they had to substitute Albuterol since Caremark would no longer fund Xopenex prescriptions. I have BCBS PPO insurance. Has anyone else found a work around to this issue? My son gets really hyper on Albuterol. I have to administer every 2-4 hrs. via nebulizer, so I'm not really looking forward to this new experience.

I did have BCBS insurance and my son was also on xopenex.. they quit covering it for me also.. The company I work for changed insurance and I now have United Healthcare and they will fill it without paying the full price
