I take Dulera for COPD. I ran out and can't get any more for another ten days .

My insurance company needed a pre-authorization from my pulmonologist before allowing me to get my prescription filled. Plus, I won't be able to afford it until the third of next month. Any suggestions on coping without it would be greatly appreciated .
