Combivent was discontinued in France in February, where it sells for a fraction of the price in the US. I would expect to see it discontinued in the US as well.

The only problem is I usually run out on my 3rd week before can get it refilled. Last week have to suffer gasping to breathe cause cant afford to buy 2th inhaler.My insurance will pay for only 1 per month

Please check with your medical professional. It is my understanding that Combvient soon will no longer be produced. It is being discontinued. Prolonged use over the years causes hand shaking and many other side effects. Check with your doctor if using albuterol nebulizer since it also contains combient.

This medication works well for me, however it runs out well before it should. It is supposed to have 200 doses per inhaler, instead it consistently has around 150. It's not just one defective inhaler, different lots all are the same. So I run out a week before insurance will pay for a refill! I'm getting 25% less product than I'm paying for & am left gasping for air a week out of the month.

After several years of treatment this has been the most effective. Gives great relief and comfort to help me enjoy my so far eighty years.

I have had Asthma for 36 yrs. I have COPD, Emphysma (never smoked), Restrictive Lung Disease, Chronic Bronchitis. This medication makes me really nauasused and sick. It also affects my breathing. I have only been on it several days. I didn't know it had a mixure in it that I am also allergic too. Great!! I will not continue to use this.

Comment from: smooch, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: August 27

I am a 58 year old male with COPD. Have been on combivent for around 4 years. It has helped me greatly-especially in coughing up mucas from lungs. I didn't know it was being discontinued and had not heard about the 'shaking hands'. I have recently noticed my hands intermittently shaking and thought it was the prednisone or other drug.

Have been in treatment for approx. 10 years with both Combivent and Flovent in conjunction. Seems to be working for me...almost 80 yrs old and still golfing and very socially active.
