    I hate hate hate this inhaler. I have had ashtma my entire life and alway had used ventolin inhalers (the ugly blue ones) in the past. They worked 100% of the time and saved me from many attacks. Since using pro air, I have to take it 3 times as much even with my regular daily maintenance inhaler. It is making my asthma worse. I need it so I use it. Hours later need more again.

    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.
