I’d rather suck up CFC’s than Albuterol.

And WHO owns the company that will be making the new PRESCRIPTION ONLY inhalers? They wouldn’t happen to be a DNC donor also, would they?

But the switch to a greener inhaler will cost consumers more

The switch to greener ANYTHING always costs the consumers more. That's the whole point of the environmental con game, seems to me.

Neil Boortz will go postal over this.

He was on an inhaler as a kid. Several times in the past the govt has tried to do this, and Boortz just lost it. He will use his show as a platform to fight this tooth and nail.

“The action is part of an agreement signed by the U.S. and other nations to stop using substances that deplete the ozone layer, a region in the atmosphere that helps block harmful ultraviolet rays from the Sun. “

Anyone seen any proof that the reduction in release of CFC’s has changed the ‘ozone holes’ above the poles (which are there for a reason), or increased the amount of ozone in the atmosphere?

I don’t think the article is correct. It’s not epinephrine versus albuterol but CFC versus non CFC inhalers.

Used to be able to buy the albuterol inhalers that contained the CFC’s for about $4.00. The new non-CFC albuterol inhalers are almost 10 times as much.

Total scam.

This really irks me. I cannot stand the prescription versions. You can’t tell if you’ve inhaled anything so you wind up doing multiple puffs which causes it to run out before the prescription can be renewed.

I tried them two years ago and after a few months switched back to the OTC version (Primatene). Prescription albuterol costs two to three times as much. It is covered by insurance but not paid for until you have satisfied your deductible. So it takes 6 or 8 months before you are not out of pocket. And at the end of the year it all starts over.

So the government, claiming to be acting in my best interest is making it harder to breathe. Big government is suffocating. Literally.

Bullsh!t ... If there are 310,000,000 people living in America, what percentage have asthma? Five percent? Less? Of those, how many use over-the-counter inhalers? Ten or twenty percent? How much damaging material can be inside such small containers?

This is big brother stepping harder on our collective neck. The only fix to all this is to reduce the size of the Federal Dragon to something that can be lived with! If not, the dragon will continue seize its prey.

If it saves just one tree frog it will be worth all the asthma related deaths.
Beat it, kid!, you were wasting oxygen anyway. /s

CFC’s are 7 times heavier than air. In a room CFC will drop to the ground.

Honestly, how much does CFC delivered asthma relief affect the atmosphere?

Sigh.....

The EPA, several years ago changed the propellent for Albuterol and ran the cost of a inhaler through the roof. The cost under Part D is well over $100 but WalMart has a generic but it cost $60. Before the government got involved I was paying under $15 per inhaler. Sure wish the government wouldn’t try to help. Oh, one more thing, the new ones aren’t as good as the old cheap ones.

I like my epi inhaler, I don’t want to use albuterol, this really sucks, I guess the greenies will get their wish and kill me off after all, just one more denier no longer wasting their precious air.
