Levosalbutamol (INN) or levalbuterol (USAN) is a short-acting β2-adrenergic receptor agonist used in the treatment of asthma and COPD. It is marketed under the brand name Xopenex, by Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc. The drug is the R-enantiomer of its prototype drug salbutamol (INN) or albuterol (USAN).

xopenex for nebulizer
I tried everything, I mean everything and in the pulmonologists office they gave me xopenex in nebulizer. It saved my life. Fla medicaid wont pay for it even after docs asked 3 times. ANY help for me? ## I am not sure what the qualifications for the programs are, some may not help if you have insurance, but it doesn't hurt to call them and check. I found two listed that may help with Xopenex: The Partnership for Prescription Assistance 888-477-2669 and RX Outreach 800-769-3880. Can you please post back and let me know if either one of these can help you? If not, I'll see what else I can find for you. ## Neither one can help me.
