Very dissatisfied with Proair. Container is extremely difficult to handle for immediate use. The first puff doesn't release properly. Then I "waste a puff by throwing it into midair" and then try again to get relief. My insurance company made the switch to my medication. I am now requesting to go back on my former medication.

This is one of the worst asthmas inhalers I have ever used the medicine may be good but the inhalant to push the medicine out is mediocre. If you are having an asthma attack you need an inhalant that pushes the medicine out this is useless compared to Proventil & Ventolin.

Insurer switched from Ventolin to ProAir. I cannot get breathing relief from ProAir. I use four puffs and relief lasts for 20-30 minutes. I am also having a very bad cough with tightness in the chest. Not satisfied at all.

Comment:
I have been an asthma sufferer most of my life and I am 35 years old. This is by far the worst and least effective inhaler I have ever used. Unfortunately, its the one covered by my insurance. Its very troubling, that a medication that is supposed to assist in one of the bodies most important function, breathing, that it is ineffective. Its also quite scary to say the least!
