I don't agree with banning aerosol epinepherine, but to be fair, albuterol is generic, and not terribly expensive.
What annoyed me was that they banned the aerosol Serevent, and it was replaced with that awful powder version.
At least the HFA replacement for the old Flovent is not so bad.
The problem is that albuterol can only be purchased by prescription. Basically, insurance companies make it so you can only buy one inhaler at a time within an arbitrary period. If you happen to: (a) run out, or (b) misplace your inhaler, and (c) its too soon to buy another one feel, yet you an attack coming on, Primatine (or its equivalent) is an excellent fall-back choice.
This has happened to me on occasion, and I have been very grateful to be able to get Primatine easily.
Epinepherine does increase heart rate and raise blood pressure, however, so it is best used sparingly by people with hypertension.
The Rhinocort AQ (aqueous version) doesn't work for me like the old aerosol did. I no longer bother trying it.
