The problem in the ERs, as well as after a same day surgery, is that the person who is given the instructions may be SICK. It can be hard to comprehend when you are in pain. Absolutely have another person there for the discharge instructions. Most hospitals put everything in writing also. After my surgery, I was still under the effects of anesthesia, but my husband was there and remembered everything I did not.

Many of us know to; Prime, clean and the flume is different the taste is different-we object to the extreme bronco spasms experienced when inhaling Ethanol a known toxin causing severe broncospasms in many asthmatics, which is in 3 of the HFA RESCUE inhalers, the 24 hr. nausea, the chest pain and stange rashes that appear! If you are experiencing adverse effects from any of the HFA inhalers please file a Medwatch complaint with the FDA and join our Campaign to Save CFC inhalers-just google us-thank you.

The new inhalers cost 2-3 times as much, get plugged easily, and empty 4-5 times as fast.

And they don't work. I was recently prescribed ProAir- an HFA inhaler- its completely useless. if it weren't for Advair i'd really be in trouble. i use the albuterol inhalers for back up/emergencies. Taking the Proair is worse than doing nothing at all- it feels like I'm poisoning myself and has NO EFFECT on my asthma. Miss the old inhaler.

The study that outlaws my lifesaving medication is absolute bullshit, environmental wackos have centered on my little bitty tiny inhaler that keeps me alive while staying silent on the factories and trucks that put thousands of tons of pollutants into the air, screw you jackasses that actually buy into this like my very existence is destroying the environment, the new medicines DO NOT WORK and I have limited time to live, deal with that!

As a lifelong asthmatic, I can say that this issue has a huge impact on me. Luckily, with Advair, I don't need to use my Albuterol inhaler very often anymore, but when I do, I want it to work like it is supposed to work. I have tried one of the new inhalers, and didn't have the problems that other posters described. However, there was a noticeable difference in the way it delivered the Albuterol.

Really, I think this is all much ado about nothing. There is no way that the CFCs from inhalers are causing much, if any, environmental damage. If anything, it is just a way for the pharmaceutical industry to increase profits on a product which has been in the market for years. With the new propellants, they will be able to recoup R&D costs on the design of the new inhalers and charge more for their products.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
