I tried it for about a week and had a severe bronchospasm when I discontinued use. I stopped using it because it was causing me to lose my voice, I felt like my head was going to explode and like my bronchial tubes were paralyzed.

I was put on this inhaler after my hospital admission for Acute Respiratory Failure. Since taking this med. I can't remember the last time I used my albuterol or my Nebulizer. Great Medication!

Comment:
I was diagnosed with Adult Onset Asthma 5 months ago. My doctor put me on Proair HFA; it worked but I had to use it more times a day than the doctor really wanted me to. She put me on Qvar (once in the morning/once at night) with the Proair to use for backup. I have been on Qvar now almost 3 months and it is amazing how much better I am doing and how much less I need the Proair.
