There are 6 comments on the ConsumerAffairs.Com story from Dec 7, 2007, titled Patients Balk at New Asthma Inhalers. In it, ConsumerAffairs.Com reports that:

“I cannot tolerate the ProAir HFA and it actually made my asthma worse. I fear that others who have been switched to HFA propelled inhalers are having increased asthma symptoms, and may not even realize why”

Over the last year or so, millions of asthmatics have been forced to change their emergency medicines, called bronchodilators or airway openers. via ConsumerAffairs.Com

The HFA does not work. The propellant in the originals got the medicine into the airways. With all the jet pollution, overlooked car and bus pollutants - who are the drug companies kidding. This is not hurting the environment (that's what my pharmacist said he was told ) - how stupid do you expect the asthmatic public to be) Less medicine - higher price - yes my bill without drug coverage jumped from $19 to $43 dollars - I'd say that's more profit for the drug companies and higher cost - less effective for the user. Thanks to the big business, greedy drug companies I am suffering - I fear one day my husband will be mourning my untimely death - class action lawsuit then - yes

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.
