Wilson Is there a rescue inhaler to replace Combivent (albuterol and ipratropium) that doesn't cost $375.00?

Spiriva/equivalent: People with COPD have tissue destruction which makes the midsize airways bow. In my opinion inhaled steroid still is mainstay. Then we can add spirit or equivalent to keep these midsize airways open and if there is exacerbation or as rescue, albuterol can still be used and easier to get in with the above. Steroid is for inflammation and twitchy airway stabilizer. Other experts have varied opinions. ...Read more
