Has DeMint lost his marbles?

I have mild Asthma, it was severe as a child. Some years ago, I was at a show in Vegas and I had been years from an Attack. The show's special effect mist turned me blue. The Primatine mist inhaler that was in the shop that my wife ran and found pretty much fixed me in 30 seconds. While I don't think I was going to die, certainly an ambulance and hospital trip was coming.

I have carried one of those Primatine mists since then(95) and I do have an HFA pro air. Pro air does not work as quickly and it is prescription only.

This asinine ban needs exemptions. How much CFC are in these things anyway? It can't be much.

I read earlier that of the current crop of prescription only replacements that one or more was scheduled to come out from patent protection in 2015 or so.

Bottom line, if Primatine is allowed to stay on the market for a few more years then the option would be a “low cost, generic” inhaler!!

You think someone in the FDA could connect the dots.

when they took the CFCs out of the Rx inhalers, they stopped being anywhere near as effective as they had been.
