They changed the propellant in prescription inhalers. These OTC inhalers (read: Primatene) have not been changed.

I understand that but if you have no insurance Primatene is affordable. Inhalers are much more expensive. I’ve used over the counter ones myself a few times when we didn’t have insurance. Even the generic ones were too expensive and Ventolin was absolutely out of my budget. The cheap ones of the prescription ones is the albuterol you put in the nebulizer. They are not portable and as long as I’ve been using it, it still takes time to get ready. Pills (and there are some you can get on the $4 drug list) are fine and help but you can still have an attack and then what do you do? Honestly, who the hell is he to tell people what they can or can’t do to simply breathe? This is completely nuts! We don’t need to be micromanaged like that and I doubt there are enough asthmatics, people with COPD, or severe allergies to destroy the ozone.
