Well, what about pirbuterol (Maxair)- which is much gentler in terms of cardiac effects than albuterol- and is still available in CFC form?
Well thankfully I have lost 300 pounds, I walk 5 miles a day now so that helps my breathing now a lot I take Atrovent as needed only now.

Please, please, the HFA inhalers are awful!! they are going to cause deaths! Dont you think that if they were as good as the other ones, we would take them and even not complain about the costs? What is wrong with our government that space flights happen and our inhalers are what is making a hole in the ozone? And if the Democrats get in, this November we are sunk. A democrat chose to put these into the whole ozone package. They WONT take it out. I have had the zeponex and the one in the SMALL red sleeve.. Both have caused my ashtma to be worse.

I too suffer from asthma and our medication such as our rescue inhalers were taken away from us and were given something that does not work. I have seen the complaints =the petitions but have yet to see anyone do anything about it as we suffer - cough and cannot breath a full breath. Is anyone willing to take a stand on this and fight for our right as americans to get the medication that we deserve? Who will stand up and fight?

As I read all of the comments, I am just floored. I must have been in never never land. I was thinking the inhaler was malfunctioning. Instead, I am just not getting any medication. I find I have to take anywhere from 3 to 5 and even 6 puffs to get relief.
I urge everyone to contact your congressional representative and senator. The only way to get attention is to go to the decision makers. Sign the petition and call the offices.

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.
