Ventolin Blue Asthma Inhalers 3 for 16.80 (cheaper than a prescription) @ UK Meds

£16.80

Posted 1st Dec 2019

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I've used this company a couple of times, mainly for travelling medicine such as malaria tablets, Diamox etc and just ordered some blue asthma inhalers from them for my other half as it's cheaper than a prescription and time off work to get into the GP for a repeat prescription.

One blue Ventolin is £11.99, two £16.99 and three £23.99 and with the code CYBER30 it brings the price down for three inhalers to less than £6 each and free delivery too. I can normally find a 30% code quite regularly with UK Meds which brings the price down significantly compared with other similar companies. You do have to do an online consultation but these are normally approved promptly.

If you pay for your prescription and regularly use inhalers then it seems like this is currently the cheapest option.

On the NHS it should be a single charge per item type regardless of quantity. So you should be able to get 2/3 inhalers for the single price. (I'm a pharmacist). Not sure why people ste being charged 3 times.
If your needing more than one blue inhaler every 1-2 months your asthma is not well controlled and you should be seeing your GP

You'll get charged per Ventolin inhaler if they're on separate prescriptions. If it's on one prescription it should just be one charge even if it's a separate line.

You only get charged per item on the same prescription if it's a different drug and different form.

Example prescription A:

Drug A tablet
Drug A tablet

The above would be one charge even if different strengths (atorvastatin 20mg and 40mg for example)

Example prescription B:

Drug A tablet
Drug A capsule

The above would be 2 charges despite being the same drug because it's prescribed as 2 different forms.

Example prescription C:

Drug A tablet
Drug B tablet
Inhaler

The above would be 3 charges as it's three different drugs in different forms.

Confusingly sometimes certain prescription lines incur 2 or 3 charges but they're less common. The most common one might be for thrush relief if something like canesten pessary/capsule & cream are prescribed as a combi pack. It would be 2 charges because it's 2 different forms within the same pack.


Hope that helps.

Probably due to to the fact that if you combine every single person who live in Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland and compare them to those who reside in England, they would be a fraction in comparison......have you seen the map of the U.K. England is much bigger! It’s all about the money!
Prescription can be ordered through your local pharmacy without the need to take time off work and it only costs £9.80 per item on NHS prescription. You can request to be supplied 2 inhalers or 3 and you'd only need to pay one charge-£9.80

My other half has always been charged for more than one inhaler. That has been the same in two different counties we have lived in. Last time she had two blue and one brown was charged 3 prescription costs.

Done the same myself. Asked for 2 as I was going through them quite quickly for exercise. After some hesitation, they gave them to me.

Will definitely consider this deal going forward. A lot less hassle.

Useful to know. I'll bear that in mind and argue with the pharmacist next time! Just ordered two anyway on Meds UK as it's more convenient at the moment.
If a medicine on the NHS is on one script, doesn't matter how many inhalers there are it's only one charge, you don't get charged for 3 inhalers, you get charged for the medication.

So people need to speak to their GPS to increase the amount of inhalers they have on the script. I think the maximum is 3 months, unless you have reasons they can increase to 6 months. It does also depend on the Dr too if they're willing to

It’s too simply to say NI, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free. Yes you don’t have to pay a fee at pharmacy BUT that’s because you’ve already paid for via your taxes

Everyone should have to pay a nominal charge (say £2 per item). Otherwise, like what happens now, millions of pounds of medicines are thrown away every year. If it’s free people get medicines even when they don’t need them

I work in the NHS and we don’t issue more than a months supply of medication at a time so you’re very lucky to be prescribed more than 1 inhaler of each type per month

Good point a subset of a larger population can always be expressed as a fraction. I know what you mean,and it's a fair point, but England is larger by what 3%? You should have argued in terms of population (85%), not a map.

If you have a friendly pharmacist, ask them about it. I used to get two tubes of 100g ungentum merc cream for my eczema and one day I went in to pick it up and she asked if there was a reason I was getting the small tubes. I said no, thats just what i have always been given, so she contacted the doctor on my behalf and then walked out with two 500g tubs! Apparently I was paying £7 or whatever it was for two small tubes that would have cost me less off prescription .

It depends if there is a two pack.

If there is a single item twin pack, it's one dispense charge.

One medication with same formulation even with multiple quantities carries one NHS charge. For example 4 packs of ventolin inhalers carries one charge of £9 flat. Same applies to tablets, such as 1 pack (28 tabs) of Amlodipine tabs would cost same as 4 packs (112 tabs). And I’m Pharmacist working in community pharmacy.
