they dont work as great. i seldomly use my inhaler but when i used the proair i could tell the difference. my boyfriend is going through them like they are candy and not getting relief. ontop of all this, my insurance doesnt cover much of the cost and he has none!

They cause severe broncospasm in some patients(myself), nausea, chest pain, rash resembling burns-they do not work for some of us and yes, I've tried them all now!!!! The HFA formulation is very inferior sold at a great cost-the heath of many asthmatics is put at risk everyday!!!! Michelle google, Save CFC inhalers and join us in the fight to breathe!!

for me they are MUCH less effective. lucky for me advair works wonders and prevents nearly 100% of my symptoms. if i had to depend on these inhalers with the severity of my asthma i would be in some serious trouble!

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.
