Some really ignorant individual got the wrong type of inhaler to depict as a "rescue inhaler"!

The new inhalers are already being forced on us and believe me, after using them for 14 years I can tell you that they are almost worthless. I doubt very much that the CFCs I inhaled directly into my own lungs did any damage to anyone's environment but my own. It becomes a quality of life issue with the new inhalers. I would prefer to have my own CFC's back and live than to choke on the new ones regularly, use twice as much of them (at least) and still not be able to breathe.

It isn't like they got sprayed at or on anyone else.

Please share about the "hippie drink". Antihistamines and all the other stuff has such horrible side effects. We've used Omega 3 and magnese with some success and sometimes B-12, so I'm very curious.

The new inhalers work well but the new propellants don't aerosolize the medications as well so I would use an extra puff.With any inhaler,technique is very important.If you really have a problem then switch to nebulized medications.

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.

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.

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.
