*Asthma Sufferers Beware!* The product PROAIR HFA (albuterol sulfate) marketed by TEVA Respiratory LLC and IVAX Pharmaceuticals of IRELAND, is a DEFECTIVE product! It is sold with labeling and a dosage counter set at 200 metered inhalations. IT DOES NOT CONTAIN 200 DOSES. IT DOES NOT EVEN CONTAIN 100 DOSES. In Truth, IT IS COMPLETELY *EMPTY* AT just 75 DOSES. With a life-threateining debilitating ... Show Full Comment

I bought spacer and spacer does not improve quality of pro-air. I like old Ventolin. It works. Just as magic. People with asthma need effective medication. Why kill people with asthma when so many chemicals with containers ar ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have only been diagnosed with Asthma for a year. This is the third inhaler that I have tried and I do not like it at all. It will initially help when I get really short of breath, but the asthma symptoms have increased from rarely to 3-4 times a day since I have been on this inhaler (just a few weeks). I wake up in the middle of the night wheezing and can't even have a long conversation befo ... Show Full Comment
