tl;dr: Advair is no longer covered by our insurance so we'll be paying out of pocket. If you're in the same boat, where have you found it for the best price in the US? Please don't recommend online pharmacies based simply on Google, I'm looking for personal experience.
I read this question
, but it is 5 years old and a lot has changed in the US medical landscape in that time.

Advair diskus 100/50 has been life-changing for Mr. Superna, but as of this year, it is no longer covered by our insurance. He has tried proposed alternatives (Symbicort and others) in the past, but they did not control his asthma. If his insurer denies his appeal, it is worth it to us to pay out of pocket.
Using Costco mail order as a baseline, an Advair 100/50 60 dose inhaler is $254.13. The $10 manufacturer's coupon brings it down to $244.13. Do you personally get a better price elsewhere?
I'd prefer a local retail pharmacy to online, but if you have personal experience with a reliable, US legal online source, I'd like to hear about that as well.
