    This is an awful product. The propulsion system is too weak. Sometimes I don't know if I received a dose with my spacer. Can't see or feel the mist. It's like voodoo.

    This is a poor product and the delivery has malfunctioned so far on three separate inhalers. I have been able to get replacements via my pharmacy but had to pay my copay again each time!

    Not effective med for severe asthma. Very slow delivery, very short duration before par compared to other inhalers. Do not spend money on this inhaler.

    this product is a total waste of money. out of 200 "puffs" I probably got 40 good ones. You let them know and all they do is thank you for your feedback but does nothing to get you the puffs you lost back these inhalers are not cheap.
