“My husband uses Advair Diskus inhaler which cost us $75.00 with our insurance. When my husband lost his job several years ago, we struggled to pay the $120 per month for the inhaler. Now the same inhaler is over $500 each. However, this spring my son-in-law found that he was able to purchase the exact same inhaler in Portugal for UNDER $20. Why are Americans forced to pay three, four or five times the amount people in other countries pay. We need our elected officials to help us.”
