    Doesn't work for me! Proair works much, much better. For multiple reasons I went to clinic and walked away with pre-scripts for Advair and this stuff. For me it takes too long to recover from shortness of breath and the expense is horrific. Insurance won't allow more than one bottle at a time.

    Every time I inhale this it makes my lungs burn and joke profusely and cough really hard for the first 30 seconds or so. But I guess it does make me breathe a little better. I get chronic bronchitis and chronic pnuemonia and pnuemonitis.

And yes, aeorsoles will be discontinued by law due to decisions made they affect the atmosphere,ha! The alternative choices are not good are complicated to use. So stock up if you can on Combi ...
