    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hi,
    There are two choices other than Advair. Dulera and Simbicort. Dulera has a "loyalty" program that greatly reduces costs for the first 6 months you use it, then watch out. It gets pricey. I am stuck with it since I do not metabolize Simbicort effectively and nose dive on it. I won't pay fro Advair, and I recently heard that some insurance companies are not paying for it either.

    Good luck.
