I have a standing prescription for Albuterol. My asthma is quite mild, so, fortunately, I seldom need the inhaler. Even with my insurance, the Primatene Mist is less expensive. And for me, the Primatene works as well as the Albuterol.
My mother (87 years old) is a life-long smoker. (someday those cigarettes will kill her), also has an Albuterol prescription. But she says the Primatene works better for her. Go figure.
Methinks I should stock up on the Primatene. Stupid enviro-wackos.
You better stock up! I wrote to Collins and Snowe this evening about this. I am so sick and tired of the FDA I can throw up. They are getting worse, IMHO, instead of better. They sure don't think about the little guy out here.
Good luck. And yes, please stock up. It won't hurt and it can only help. :)
