I have used Albuterol for the last 8 or 9 years. When they took it off the market I was put on this and it DOESN'T work. AND I think i'm allergic to something in it but its the only thing I can take when a sudden attack comes on(even though it really doesn't work).

I have been using this inhaler for the past 10 months. I am not happy with it. I feel like I have to use more of it than I ever had to use my albuterol inhaler. After I use it it makes me feel sick to my stomach.

Comment:
I have only been using this inhaler for about 6 months as opposed to the 6 years I used my other inhaler. This one does not work most of the time! I feel like I am constantly needing more medicine, since it hasn't controlled my attacks as well as I need it to. I'm going to the doctor next week to hopefully try something different...
