I tried one of the new ones, ProAir. It is MUCH more expensive than my old albuterol and doesn’t seem to work as well at all.

I’ve now found something else that works though. If anyone is in the same boat, you might want to try Combivent.

I don’t want a change from something that works for me. This ozone protection crap doesn’t work.

Thank you for the info about Combivent. My son has severe asthma, a heart problem, extreme allergies, etc. I will give him this information.

Combivent is albuterol plus another medication. I've used it in the past and found it to be helpful, but my combivent inhaler used the CFC's as well, so I wonder if the "new" formulation would be any better.

Albuterol worked just fine when the dispensing mechanism (CFC's) actually propelled the medication. These new ones just kind of "spurt" and you need to really inhale to get the medication in where it needs to be. But guess what--when you need it is when you CAN'T inhale.

Of course it would be more expensive and not work as well. The government said this is what asmatics have to use. The government said we could only use low-flow toilets. They use more water than the older ones because you have to flush more often! Can only wonder how the government mandate about the kind of TV reception we can have starting next February will work. It’s more expensive, that’s for sure. By the way, I’m a life long asmatic and have COPD. Doc put me on Advair. It’s ok but does not work as well as albuterol.
