Atrovent HFA (ipratropium bromide) is used to treat Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD) and costs about $530 without insurance for one inhaler. Atrovent Nasal Spray (ipratropium) treats seasonal allergies and costs about $204 without insurance but can be purchased at a more affordable price for the generic brand. 

Cost of Atrovent HFA Without Insurance

If you have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD), chronic bronchitis, or emphysema, your doctor may prescribe you Atrovent HFA. Without insurance, one inhaler of Atrovent HFA (ipratropium bromide) costs about $530 out-of-pocket. Unlike other prescription medications, there are no generic forms of Atrovent HFA available, making it a very costly medication.  

Atrovent HFA is a long-term treatment medication that is only available in one strength, delivering a dosage of 17 micrograms of the medication for each ‘puff’ from the inhaler. The typical starting dose for COPD is two puffs of Atrovent HFA taken four times a day. If your doctor suggests you use this dosage, one inhaler that contains 200 puffs will last about 25 days. Therefore, you may use about 15 inhalers of Atrovent HFA per year, costing upwards of $7,950 annually without insurance.  

The table below shows the price of Atrovent HFA at various pharmacies if paying without insurance.
