    Delivery method failure. Medicine works if you UNSCREW THE TOP and take it like a regular inhaler. Couldn’t afford to waste the ones I had that quit working. Now I can breathe again.

    50% of the time the medication is disbursed as I open the white cover. I have to close the cover and reopen to get the medication. The medication is not always the same amount disbursed. The old qvar worked great, but this is taking advantage of those who can’t use any other asthma medication. $270 per unit is outrageous. And a 50% fail rate (med disbursed upon opening lid) is robbery.

    This is a defective design. I am able to stay controlled by twisting the top off and using it as a normal inhaler. I have about 5 of these that still have many doses left. I have too much invested in these to not try and work around this terrible design that fails to dispense doses!!!
