I have to say the change to HFA inhalers has awakened me-the disregard to the many Asthmatics unable to use the new formulation by the FDA is an atrocity. To say so many of us are unable to read and follow directions amazes me!!!!! Let's see, Xopenex-tis not albuterol and if you have Ht problems, is not a choice: Ethanol induces bronco-spasm in some people; Ventolin does not contain Ethanol, but I found out I am allergic to microcrystallized celluose, a microcrystallized ingredient is listed-lets see allergies to 3 and not allowed the Xopenex-so where does that leave some of us-backwards 30 years here we go!! If anyone else out there having problems-google, "Save CFC Inhalers"-we need to work together!

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.
