Is Prescription Care considered a Symbicort coupon?

If you are looking for a Symbicort coupon, keep in mind that you can likely save more on the medication via Prescription Care. When obtaining your Symbicort medication via Prescription Care, your total cost for the medication will always be $49 per month.

What is Symbicort prescribed for?

Symbicort is prescribed to patients who have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), especially those suffering from chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Patients inhale the medication through a special device in order to experience alleviation of undesirable symptoms like wheezing and shortness of breath.

The medicine is also prescribed to asthma patients when breathing problems cannot be controlled by asthma medications alone. Asthma patients should not use this medication to control sudden asthma attacks.

Active Ingredient

Symbicort contains two active ingredients: budesonide (a corticosteroid), and formoterol, which belongs to a class of drugs known as long-acting beta agonists. Fluticasone reduces irritation and swelling of the airways, while salmeterol helps to open the airways and improve breathing.

Conditions treated by Symbicort

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease – COPD

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is an umbrella term used to describe progressive lung diseases. The two conditions that most commonly contribute to COPD are chronic bronchitis and emphysema.

Patients with chronic bronchitis experience daily cough and mucus production, caused by an inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes. Emphysema is caused by exposure to cigarette smoke, chemical gases, and various airborne particles. This exposure destroys the alveoli, or the small lung openings where oxygen begins circulating.


Asthma is a lung condition in which airways become chronically inflamed and swollen. These symptoms cause airways to tighten and produce extra mucus. Patients experience a host of negative symptoms like wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath. Some patients only suffer mild symptoms, while others may need careful monitoring and/or medical treatment.

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as Prescription Care assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (Refund).

To receive a Refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 866-262-2603, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
