    I have had asthma for 20 years. After many different types of prescription drugs, and many doctors that were reluctant to give me anything at all even after testing positive for asthma, I found this miracle drug!

    Primatene Mist is the only medication that helps me through my asthma through allergy season. It works a whole lot better than the prescription medications.

    My doctor told me to stop taling it and take all the prescription drugs he gave me. I did and ended up in the hospital twice that year. I dropped all the Rx stuff and got back on Primatene mist.
