Wyeth says it needs until 2009 or 2010 to have a substitute, which itself must be approved by the FDA, for over-the-counter use.
Duh, Wyeth, have you ever heard of Albuterol?
I haven't seen the request for them to review over the counter inhalers so I don't know the question they were asked. I question if it is the responsibility of the FDA advisory panel to judge CFCs. Where does FDA get statuatory authority to ban a product because of CFCs?
Albuterol requires a prescription.
I have an Albuterol inhaler but it is by prescription. Albuterol is a controlled drug.
