I don’t know much about asthma and inhalers. Are inhalers something you can stock up on?

You never want to use Primatene Mist for anything but last resort. But for those of us who find themselves without our albuterol inhaler being able to go around the block to get a Pimatene is a real "safety net". For some it's more than that.

Forget the foolishness of being sucked into the ozone hole thing (see: anthropomorphic global warming) Nanny State should have never considered forcible (coersed) removal of this product without having approved another asthma inhaler for OTC availability.

How will people get their asthma treatment from unicorns when they all will be plugged into the power grid since coal fired plants will be mostly closed?

Make room on the stock up shelf next to the good, murcury-free lightbulbs that are going away.

For those who haven't seen it yet and those who are interested here's information on drug expiration dates and storage:

Drug Expiration Dates - Do They Mean Anything?

Do Medications Really Expire?

Are Drugs Good After Expiration Date

Drugs Past Their Expiration Date; Are they Safe to use?

And although this thread is about an OTC med... This booklet was written for medicare on how to get drug plan to pay for medication you need. The same rules apply to non-medicate drug plans.

Drug Appeals Manual

Federal Regulations re Rx Appeals - including time frame in which insurance company must respond

Most drug plans allow you to renew a few days early. Over time you can build up an emergency reserve of a medication you depend upon.
