I thought they already changed inhalers so they didn’t emit those cfc’s. This is a huge and potentially deadly problem. The next cheapest solution is a nebulizer, well the solution you put into them is on the $4 generic drug list. You still have to buy the machine, though sometimes the companies will donate them. The problem is you can’t take them with you so if you have an asthma attack while away from your machine and an electrical outlet you’re SOL. Don’t know what I’d do if I was unable to have my inhaler with me.
They changed the propellant in prescription inhalers. These OTC inhalers (read: Primatene) have not been changed.
